Always someone else’s fault
SS14 stb 15 lies about everything, but it's never his fault. In his mind, if he tells the truth eventually, we should all be thanking him and praising him. It doesn't matter how many times the importance of honesty is explained to him. It is always our fault, or the teachers' fault that he had to lie.
Trying to be patient I explained all of this again, and said he could use his time with his school counselor to help with his communication skills. (He has an IEP and meets with the counceslor once a week) And he told me if he told the counselor about us CPS will be called.
Sounds to me like he thinks we are abusive to him. This is not the first time he mentioned CPS. I asked him how he plans to explain to CPS why he doesn't want to live with his mom and still wants to live with us since we are so abusive. He doesn't have an answer. I don't know if he thinks that it will be a "punishment" for us if CPS is called. Like does he think we will then have to do exactly what he says in the way he wants after CPS is called? Really we have nothing to fear even if CPS is called (matter of fact, BM had called CPS on DH before we even met each other, not even new to him). It just makes you feel cold when you tried everything to help a person hoping he can be on his own.
We are all so stressed out because of him, but of course, he alone is the victim. He has everything he needs and beyond, but we still owe him.
