Was I wrong?Submitted by stepmomof1biomomof1 on Thu, 04/20/2017 - 1:28pm
Last weekend my 13 year old SD was at our house. She had a application for a mentor program for special needs kids. She had the application for 2 weeks and it was due Monday.
It had 8 questions that she was supposed to fill out. "Have you ever worked with special needs kids" " What are your strongest strengths" type of questions.
She had only filled out her name on the sheet and waited until Sunday to get DH to TELL her what to write.
She would be helping them with homework if she got the position. She doesn't even turn in her own homework and makes terrible grades.
I was passing through the living room while I was getting ready for church (horrible time for her to be doing this anyway) and casually said " if you are applying for a leadership type of position I feel like you should answer them yourself and then DH can help you spruce them up"
She flipped out. Got in my face/pointed her finger in my face and started screaming at me that her answers had to be perfect. That I just didn't want her to get the position. I lost my temper and started screaming back that she wasn't to ever talk to me like that again.
DH took my side and screamed at her and made her go to her room. She wailed and cried and acted like she was so mistreated. BUT then he got upset with me that I wouldn't go sit in her room with her and talk to her and try to make it right.
Keep in mind that Sunday was Easter. I was so upset/pissed off the rest of the day. she got to have a great fun day when we went to the in laws for Easter while I was left in a bad mood.
