Im done

Sam and Lacy never listen. They think that everything should be done for them that they are above the stinking rules. They think they have to listen to dad's girlfriend before listening to mommy. Im about to the point that im going to sign over custody. I dont know how much more i can handle

    We have been split up since before either one could remember. His girlfriend lets them have run of the house and i am a bit stricter but still allow fun. Grounding them and tme outs just dont work anymore. i have taken literally everything away from them except for beds clothes and food.

      I just wish they would listen even some of the time. They have gotten to the point where they never listen to me unless there is something in it for them.

        :( Don't give up. You are not alone. My oldest does the same thing to me when she is here.
        We've had lots of time outs today with her today... She cries worse than the two year old.

          They want video games sprinkler time shopping. Maybe i should sit them down and have a meeting. Im tired of yelling. I dont want to yell but it is the same thing day after day.

              I'm sorry. :( I wish I could give you advice, but I feel like I'm drowning some days, too.. I use school work for discipline. I wrote down a bunch of character traits and she is having to look them up every time she is in trouble. I honestly don't know if it will work-but it can't hurt.

                  Does grandma have any effect? I have given her the phone in the past, let her vent her frustrations to grandma or aunt and it seems to calm down for a day at least.

                                At least you fed them. I have threatened nothing but bread and butter for supper before. :) Hold the baby and calm down. :)
