Let's see if this backfires on you, SS
For backstory, SS has a history of emotional manipulation, depression, and buying video games with his mother's credit card without permission (in my opinion, also known as credit card fraud). So, SS's new therapist e-mailed DH a long message after SS's last appointment. I assume SS complained to her about losing his screens...a lot. (I was told that he lost his xbox at BM's house permanantly after this round of credit card fraud, but both DH and BM aren't great at follow-through and SS knows how to manipulate them.) Anyway, the therapist sent a message basically saying that DH and BM should no longer take away screens for negative behavior. Instead, SS should only earn screens after positive behavior and she listed about 100 or more chores/things that he could do to earn screen time.
SS currently has zero chores, unless you include brushing teeth, taking a shower, and doing homework...yeah. So, I'm just laughing inside. Whatever SS thought he was going to get out of telling his therapist that everyone is mean to him and how depressed he is without his screens will hopefully backfire on him [I'm speculating what he said to his therapist, since he has told DH in the past that he needed an xbox in our home, not just his mom's home, because it prevented him from having suicidal thoughts (apparently the nintendo Wii and switch in our house wasn't enough)]. Not holding my breath though...I'll just have to wait and see how DH implements this in our household.
