Stop making excuses for him!! -_- *~AngelEyes~* 2 kids; 1 angel baby; Memphis, Tennessee 5659 posts10th Sep
I swear, every time my oldest throws a fit and I get on to him for the way he acts, my dad comes out with "That's just the age he is" or "You used to act the same way!" dude, just wtf?! I'm trying to teach him the same lesson I was taught... umm, what's that?? OH RIGHT!! That throwing a temper tantrum won't get me anywhere!!! smdh... at least about three or four times tonight alone he did this... with my son around, and that in turn makes him think... "Oh, I can do this because of my age!" I think NOT! I mean, he was literally screaming, jumping up and down and flailing his body practically like a two year old would do... I actually laughed at it, which I really shouldn't have done I know. I even went to the extent of making him sit in the middle of my parents bed until I told him he could come out of the room... I just get sick and tired of when I'm trying to correct him, something being said about it... okay, I KNOW I used to do the same thing, but that's not gonna give him the right to act like this. I wasn't allowed to get away with it, either... whether it was "just my age" or not... smdh... sorry, I just had to get that off my chest... I'm so stressed as it is, so him throwing fits over literally EVERYTHING and my dad basically saying it's okay for him to act like that... it just don't help me any! -_-

I can soooo relate to this. My mom is the same way about DD. "She gets that from you. You were the same way at her age. Blah blah blah." Drives me absolutely nuts. :x

I generally have the opposite problem with my dad. My son does the tiniest thing and my dad is all ready to read him the riot act. Sometimes I wonder if my dad was this damnably mean about what he said when I was a kid. I have to keep reminding him to condemn the behavior and not the child.

I know the feeling. I get some heat from my mom but mostly it's a battle with DH. He lets our son get away with practically everything and then when he's out of control.....DH comes to me and says, "You better discipline our son bc he won't listen to me!" Really? Hmm I wonder why that is. -_- But yeah my mom is the same way....she thinks I'm way too "tough" on my kids. She OBVIOUSLY doesn't remember how tough she was on me as a child when I did some of the same crap. :roll:
