Anyone have DH that is also fed up with SK?
I feel like a lot of DH on here live in denial, put the child first, etc. etc. Any DHs out there that are also totally fed up with SKs antics? Last few days DH has been very vocal about his disdain.
Last Saturday, DH rushed around to make sure SD10 had a costume. Went to the store, looked on Amazon, etc. Well he finally got the costume JUST in time before trick-or-treating started. All he got was complaints "It's too tiiiiight" "I didn't think it would look like this." etc. etc. Nothing but ungrateful comments. I told DH she did the SAME last year with me. SHE decided she wanted to be a skeleton, then pouted the entire Trick-Or-Treating experience saying it "looked weird". That's why I tapped out this year and said, "nope, your turn!"
DH agreed and said "She's never satisfied, never grateful, a spitting image of her mother." Wow, I mean that was pretty harsh, but also the truth. He didn't say it to SD, but have to say I totally agree. It's also refreshing that DH is starting to see where I"m coming from. He definitely wouldn't have had that reaction last year. She has also been incredibly rude to him lately too. So he has seen first hand.
Example, last night at dinner SD10 was complaining why she had to go to school this week and why he opted for her to go on "optional days" for extra assistance. "You're forcing me to do this and I didn't sign myself up for this." DH explained she constantly has missing assignments and doesn't do her work. She continues to argue. I think since DH is experiencing SD directly rather than me telling him "hey, this is what happened with SD" he has been in less denial.
Anyways, question is. Any other DH out there also fed up? What do you do? I'm continuing to disengage. DH has taken away all technology, but we will see if this has any effect or not. Thoughts?
