My children 6&7 have been through a horrendous last 12 months… from ripped from there home to a refuge 40 miles away… to be housed in a new town… we had no furniture to start literally moved in with sleeping bags… no money etc etc but now our little flat is furnished, I have a good job and they never go without…. they do see their dad once a week and he is holy one who can do no wrong because for one night a week they have no rules eat what they want do what they want etc… I give them everything they ask for, days out, pocket money, treats etc etc but they’re so damn ungrateful it really gets me down. I know they’ve been through so much and I try so hard to be understanding but their behaviour is out of hand… I don’t know what else to try. Tantrums, attitude, ungratefulness, saying things like I can’t wait to go to dads…. I’m at my wits end.. and my son doesn’t sleep…..ever!!!!!
Wish u could give advice but I can’t really. Is it a phase they are going through and they want To rebel. I was brought up by my Mum only and sometimes didn’t realise how good she was. Maybe I’m not very good on this Subject sorry
It’s exactly the same with my kids dad no rules bed when they want eat what they like and I think it’s because there testing us to see if we will do the same I obviously haven’t and they are slowly coming round just carry on with what you do.
