GROW A PAIR DH!!!
I am so pissed right now I could explode!!! So SD16 gets in a fight at school yesterday and got suspended from school for 3 days. I was fully expecting DH to be his passive self and just let it go (like he has with the missing beer, calling me a bitch, punching holes in the wall, etc, etc) but he actually took her car away. I didn't ask for how long, I don't really care, I was just shocked that he actually gave her an f'ing consequence. I was actually proud of him. Well that was short lived because I just saw her at the bank driving grandma's (MIL) car. Really?? So what's the point of being grounded from her car if she can just use someone elses?? Really effective punishment. Not to mention the second that DH did give her a consequence, she ran straight to BM who called DH and laid into him about how over-the-top he was over the fight. So she ran to BM's house when she was disciplined, then had grandma come get her this morning so she could come to our house and shower, then asked daddy if she could use grandma's car to "run some errands". Jeez, I wish my punishments when I was a teen were so laxed...but then maybe I would've turned out to be some careless adult like my DH since he was never disciplined.....UGH...vent over. Thanks.
