When do skids take responsibility? Or..when do DH and BM let skid take responsibility?
So SS had an “incident” while deployed and is not allowed off at port for the next 5 months. I am not sure what really happened. Imagine that!
SS was ALWAYS in trouble growing up. Many school suspensions for various crap. Barely passing EVERY year. It was one thing after another.
Well SS sent DH an email telling him how bored he is now after the “incident” and that trouble seems to find him no matter how hard he tries to avoid it and that he is always just in the wrong place at the wrong time. So DH is telling me all of this and then goes off on a tangent about poor little SS. And how everyone is so unfair to him and blablabla. I just looked at DH and grunted a bit and left before I said the following….
“SS causes all of his own problems!! And you and BM made SS the person he is! No one else made him…steal, lie, fight, sexual harass, ect…ect…over and over. And just be an all-around jerk to his teachers and peers. SS did all of that and more, ALL on his own. You can’t blame everyone else or just bad luck for the little turds problems!! He is a grown man. Time to man up and take responsibility for himself”
I understand the whole parental bond, but dang…time to stop babying your grown military man/child and realize that everyone is not really just picking on him.
Does your DH feel that their kids problems are caused by EVERYONE else besides the skid and BM and DH?
