My Kids Are Naughty Little Brats

Posted by

I love my kids but for some reason they are naughty, stubborn, disrespectful and can care less what I say or how I feel. They are going to do whatever the hell they want anyway. Mom is not important.

I am pissed!

This afternoon while I was upstairs putting away laundry and organizing the boys’ dresser the kids got into the pantry, smeared peanut butter all over the dining room table, dumped out a package of pudding, broke two photo frames, scattered an art set all over the living room floor and scattered their snow clothes all over the play room. I screamed and yelled at them all and probably said a few words that I shouldn’t have and they all acted like it was no big deal that mom was upset.

I said over and over again that they all had to clean up their mess downstairs but nobody budged. I yelled, I took away the computer and the wii but still they didn’t care or listen. The only thing that they managed to clean up was the art set but that was after I yelled.

I don’t know what to do. My kids are spoiled little monsters and I am sick of it. If they can’t respect me, then I guess I won’t respect them.

Until they learn how to listen to me and clean up their messes I am not going to let them play outside, play computer games, play with the wii, or watch TV. I am sick of this crap and it has to stop. I can’t leave them alone for a minute.

  1. I know exactly how you feel. I am the mother of four and often find myself in similar situations. But can I offer a little bit of unsolicited advice? In my experience those things don't work. What I do find success with is quite the opposite. Take a proactive approach. Involve the kids in putting away the laundry. Involve them in cleaning up. And play wii with them. Sometimes kids act out because they want attention negative or positive it does not matter. They don't learn respect from punitive actions they learn from your example. Hope you are having a better day today!

  2. AAAAaaahhhh! What happened??? It's been days and I really need an update. What a crazy situation.

    I appreciate you finding the time to stop by my blog through the UBP '12. I can't wait to hear how things are today.
