Hopelives Posted April 20, 2010 Share Posted April 20, 2010 is 18. I love him to pieces. We've had our rows - I've raised him on my own since he was 6 months old, his father was never involved with him after that age. Anyway, the past 5 years have been hard for me with him. It's on here somewhere but I'm not rehashing that now. It is in the past. We've rebuilt a different relationship that is better, more stable and solid. HOWEVER, I have a pet peeve and it is really making me REALLY mad. My son went from straight A's in 6th grade, top 2 in entire county in math and science to... ba da dum dum.... failing out of high school. It is emotionally related, not drugs, drinking, or sex. We had a bit of evil enter our lives for a short time (15 months) when he finished 6th grade and stench took a very long time to get over. anyway, blah blah blah... my house was foreclosed upon. I needed to move. I received child support that would be in effect until my son graduated from high school BUT because he is now officially a drop out, the child support stopped. I was counting on the CS to help pay for the rent in the new place. My son, the love of my life, got a job nearby and I told him I needed the help to pay for bills on new place. As a student myself (med school), I don't have the income to pay for everything like I did in our old house along with all our vacations, blah blah blah. Anyway, this twit s@#$ of a son, spent his entire check on freaking video games today. ](*,) I just looked at him... with an unhappy, disgusted look, like, "seriously?" He asked, "wat!?" I said, "You know... the CS is gone because YOU did not finish high school. Now, I scrape enough money together to buy YOUR food that YOU waste, to pay for the water bill and the electric bill, YOU know I'm scraping to pay for the rent, just watched me count to make sure I had enough for dog food and you buy f@#$ing video games??" I'm angry. I love him, but I'm angry. That's all. erggggg ](*,) Link to comment
