Should I love or should I fight is it all the same to you?

Not much to offer today. I am upset with both of my Princes. Apparently neither of them believe that the work assigned to them in their respective schools applies to them. I am just so over it. Life is going to kick the Prince in the a** someday soon if he doesn't start to realize he has to follow the same rules as the rest of us. Only he will lack a formal education, he will be judged for his past, and he seems to have the maturity level of a 12 year old, so he will have it just that much harder. La Petit just doesn't "like" to do his homework. I mean, c'mon... WTF??

Have a nice weekend y'all.

Hey Kel--
It's been really busy & I haven't had a chance to look in on your blog until today. I know just what you mean about the homework. My older son COMPLETELY disregarded every aspect of schoolwork. My younger one does a half-assed job on his. It's so hard to find out what the work was supposed to be, to weed through the lies and the resistance to actually writing down the assignments. Even in the rehab, with everything having to be earned by achievement, my older son is still failing to do his homework. At least he's moved some of his grades up from the unilateral F's - still an awful lot of D's - this is a very bright kid who just can't bring himself to expend any mental effort. Let me know if you figure it out! But try to have a good weekend anyway - we need to take care of ourselves, too, and not get totally flummoxed by family. It's a short life we're given - take a little pleasure for yourself today. Also, emails can be considered harassment, so I think you should file a complaint with the police - take some printouts with you. Hope you & the Prince make it to a meeting - but think about going to one yourself if he refuses to tag along.

Big hug--

The joys of having kids... I wonder if they are returnable.

It sounds as if the boys will have to accept consequences for their actions. They may not like the outcome but you can't make them do what they don't want to do. Maybe they will eventually understand that fucking off has it's problems too.

Doesn't the thought of summer school scare them?

My 12 year old has been trying to pull this. It really is a matter of them understanding the consequences. If they cannot grasp them, there really is very little you can do about it but hope a light will go on for them.

Hang in there, chica. Talk to them. Especially the younger one might still have a shot at hearing some sense from you.

And don't forget to be good to yourself this weekend. You deserve it!
