Im through all that now but before we pass judgement on this kid we should know more about him.
Agreed, and noted....HOWEVER,
I'll put for the record that destroying a child's toy in front of him was a whole lot better than sending him through the wall, or drop-kicking him.
And if, at a later age, he figures to take his old man on, that's fine. Any day. As long as I provide everything he needs for a good upbringing, including discipline, and he's under my roof, I make the rules. If he doesn't like them, the door is right there.
But he doesn't; in fact, after the shotgun incident, he told me he realized what a load of stress he put on Dad, and apologized (he basically crashed my work laptop despite my request that he doesn't install any of his games on it. His disobedience caused me to lose several month's work.) My son thinks that I'm the best thing since sliced bread.
It's just that if Spartan wants to harp about his relational problems with his mom, he ought to save it for his blog. Or Forum-125. If he doesn't have any Nerf blasters right now, that's too bad, but it doesn't validate reason to begin posting about every aspect of his life. EVERYBODY HAS PROBLEMS IN LIFE. This isn't the arena to be touchy-feely and somehow, someway, try to get in touch with ourselves.
I was >< that close to deleting the thread as 'unnecessary', but figured to leave it in for input from the community.
I'm sorry to hear of your difficult upbringings, but for your information, I too, was raised in one of those "disadvantaged", broken homes. Hasn't fazed me any. In fact, it forced me to grow up before my time. Made me a much better, stronger parent. I could go on, but it'll get really off-topic, even for a Nerf-related forum board.
And on this particular environment, NerfHaven, I am
the high and mighty parent. Voice your opposing opinion if you must, but if the way I dispense advice really bothers you, contact cxwq or Shindig about getting me removed as an administrator.
I call 'em as I see 'em.
