BM “made her bed, now she has to lie in it” According to DH
I saw a similar post but can't locate it so here goes..
BM has full custody over education. DH has full custody over medical. BM Cuddles and babies SS14 to a point he's a spoiled rotten Entitled brat.
Last Semester SS14 decided he wanted to go FULL remote instead of going into school. BM allowed this and it resulted in a total disaster. DH was never asked his opinion on this. SS14 refused to listen to his teachers, goof off and refused to do any work. This has resulted in SS14 failing 8th grade and having to go to summer school. Of course SS14 is refusing to go to summer school and says he does not care if he has to repeat 8th grade. Knowing SS14 it's unlikely he will change his attitude and be a star student next fall.
Now DH has tried half heartedly to get SS14 back on track but since BM refuses to punish SS14 for being defiant it's hard to impossible for DH to do anything. If DH really dug his heals in and devoted 24/7 to fixing this he probably could but DH attitude is BM made this decision without asking DH so it's her mess to fix.
So first it's true if BM refused to let SS14 stay home in the first place this would have never gotten out of control. But as a parent should DH put aside that BM caused this problem and do everything in his power to correct it?
