Haven't post for a while. The past 3 weeks has been hard. Because the school has closed all the way till Summer possibly, we are stuck at home with the kids. I'll admit even just with my own it's hard, and it doesn't really matter how sweet DD9 is. But stuck home with SS12 (ASD+ADHD) is even harder. It's almost impossible for both DH and I to work from home because the challenges the kids presents.
DH has to be on business trip this week. Another week fighting with my SS just about everything.
I tried really hard not to say it out loud. I really tried. But the truth is really that I hate the fact I have to live with my autistic SS over 300 days a year, because his own $hit mom won’t freaking do her 30% of parent duty.
Every night with homework is a freaking fight. Four years now and nothing has changed. For some reason he still thinks he’s the smartest and tries to “teach me” every time we correct him. DH does most of the hw checking but it’s never really stress free.
I thought about not posting this but recently it has been quite unbearable.
After the crazy BM episode (spoiler alert: she didn’t even bother to see her son a bit, surprise!) we have been struggling with SS11’s behavior. Even the school work and homework both have been really light.
Again SS11 is high functioning ASD + ADHD. I get that most of the time he really didn’t intend to offend, but god, when do you really draw a line when you have been teaching the same thing over and over and over and this human being just seemingly can’t learn?
NCP BM lives in another state, she doesn't see SS more than 30 days a year. She usually gets "some" summer time and one week at the end of the year for her parenting time. (Not per court order, but more of her own choice. She is supposed to see her sone at least once a month for a weekend, but we all know how that works.) BM has no legal custody of SS.
I created a new account just because I realized I have used the same username while still dating DH. Althought I don't think he's ever been on his way to spy on me or anything I just don't feel comfy using the same username again. So, I'm not new here.
Background: SS11 is HFA (high functioning autistic) + ADHD, arguing is our daily dish that I don't enjoy.
