WTF just happened?
Today is DH's day off and we were just woken up by BM's call about SD arguing about going to sex ed today. I am so sick of BM's lack of parenting and involving DH in the most basic situations. DH even offered to keep SD last night and take her to school this morning but BM just had to have her home. There never would've been an argument if DH dropped SD off.
SD was literally on the phone crying to him that she "already knows everything and doesn't want to sit there for an hour". DH said first, she doesn't know everything, and second, tough luck, she needs to learn about her body and she won't be 12 forever, so she better learn to grow up! He then told her that since he's off today, he will go sit in the class with her if she won't be mature about it. She declined, of course.
BM needs to put her big girl panties on and be a parent! She can't call DH every time SD won't listen to her. BM and SD's conversation should've gone like this:
SD- I don't want to go to sex ed.
BM- Sorry, you are growing up and it's important to be informed about your body. If you have any questions, you can talk to me. Have a good day and I love you. *end of conversation and no more arguments*
This is the problem at BM's!! She has to argue with SD instead of being the parent and stepping the fack up! She wants to pop out kids, she needs to learn to be a parent and not cry to DH because she can't get her sh!t together!
ETA: SD was already hysterical when DH talked to her so that means BM had been arguing enough to have SD all riled up (instead of defusing the situation like a normal parent/ adult would).
