stressed knowing that in about 2 hours ss12 will be back home, I had such a wonderful weekend just hanging out with my children , no fighting, they were helpful, no backtalking, no hateful comments, no shit disturbing, just a really nice peacefull weekend, now it's over!
why should I have to live with 5 days of hell just to get 2 days of peace, everyother weekend, on the other weekend it is worse than hell with both ss's here.
I just hope it gets better, another 6 years of this, I don't know if I can take it!!

We've just implemented a new rule in our home that has seemed to help so far. I've grown tired of the kids bickering and fighting, it's both skids and my biokids..neither are innocent.

So, regardless of who's arguing, regardless of who starts it, and what it's about...the children involved in the arguing will be on restriction for a full week. No games, toys, TV, nothing. If they are working it out constructively, that's a different story.

I'm trying to teach the kids that they can't change the other person, no matter how much arguing they do. They always have a choice in the situation, and one of their choices is to ignore and walk away.
