My kids...

Sep 12, 2008 - 0 comments

why is it that my kids really know where it hurts the most and what to say to hurt me???
My son has this attitude at the moment and I cannot seem to get him to do anything without an argument...
I feel horrible, and he will say things like "You hate me and you don't want me around" "Your being mean to me" "you never do anything with me but Dad does..."
The thing is I do do things with him perhaps not as much as Dad because lately he has been choosing to do more things with Dad and I thought that this was great (bonding)
I don't want to lose my son and I sometimes feel that he pushes me away - how can I connect with him?

My daughter cannot except no for an answer and must have the last word.... We don't give in to her (she is not spoilt)
My husband seems to have more issues with her at the moment than I.... But I can see what he is saying about her attitude and her stubbornness. But I find I am closer to her than my son, and I don't want it to be this way. I want to be close to both my children and to have them know that I am here for them both...

Is this normal or what?
