I'm just aggravated tonight. The way these brats talk to their dad drives me insane.
SD14 has three D's. A's in the classes she likes, but online school makes it impossible to pass the classes she doesn't like, supposedly. Her story is: neither the paper the school mailed us with her grades, nor the online portal, are accurate. She's completed more than every source says she has. How do you get a D- in PE? PE you don't even have to physically show up for? Simple. The stupid school requires you to download a specific App for that one class, and her phone won't download it. Huh? What do the kids without Smart phones do? And why are they issued chrome books if the school is going to give them tasks that can't be completed on it? It's bullshit. But when DH told her it was bullshit, she had a meltdown, and her mom came to her defense. "Half the kids in America are having the same problem." Really?
This is how it always is. The kids push, talk back, even lie until they get a reaction. Then they whine to their mother and she gets all pissed off. Doesn't she care that they'll be adults shortly? And if they don't do well in school, they might not even graduate. On top of being lazy, selfish and rude, they'll be dumb.
I seriously suspect she's purposely trying to cripple them, so they'll always need her.
