Yes I’m such a shitty parent for giving my son clothes and books for Christmas. How dare I give him consequences for his bad behavior?! You are incredibly dramatic.Baconqueen13 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 04, 2019 6:57 pmNo one said what he did was okay, what they ARE saying is the punishment you have decided upon is the wrong course of action and it is, but being a shitty parent you think only of how to get back at your son and make him regret the action rather than address why it occurred in the first place which only further highlights your shitty parentingAnonymous 1 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 04, 2019 6:51 pmI’m amazed that some of you think it’s perfectly ok for him to destroy over $2,000 in presents, a lot which weren’t his, just because it’s Christmas. Not giving him a Nintendo switch and some legos isn’t going to kill him. Maybe he will realize he can’t just ruin things that aren’t his if he opens a few outfits and books rather than a drone, videos games, or other shit he doesn’t need.
I know why it occurred, he told me many times why it occurred, he did it because he wanted to open presents and didn’t want to wait and he admitted that he doesn’t care that he opened other peoples presents because he wanted it.
He admitted he knew it was wrong, he told me that he should have waited and wouldn’t do it again, obviously we F***ing talked about it. Bottom line is he doesn’t feel bad for what he did because he wanted to do it and he owned that part too. He says I’m mean because I’m giving him consequences. He says the same thing when I send him to his room so whatever.
He’s already over it, he told me today after school that he wanted to give his cousins his presents. He isn’t that attached to stuff, I took away an iPad once and told him how to earn it back and he told me to throw it out instead. It had nothing to do with the presents themselves. He wanted to open everything so he did. You and the others on here are making the punishment so much more dramatic than it really is.
