At least when my 20 yr old decides to yell at me "Get the fuck out of here you fucking bitch! Do you know what time it is?"
I know not to engage and just ignore it in the moment and have this to read:
I went to the basement where there is a filter on the faucet to fill the water cooler that I keep in the fridge. I have to fill it once a day.
It was 100 degrees here in VA today.
The house now likely has cooled overall about 15 degrees. In my bedroom it has thankfully cooled even further as I have the window open with a fan blowing cool evening air in.
But the living room and kitchen downstairs are definitely still in the 80s!
I was just doing the normal evening routine:
I just and dozed off then awoke at it is clearly time to go to bed.. but will finish this first....
Venting just makes me feel better after my kid is abusive to me. I am just not confident having followed advise like that in the article has made a positive different in my kid.
I hope long term it will.... but really at 20 I would have expected my kid would have overcome being abusive.to me.
I mean this is not a LITTLE KID!! Sheesh....
but soon enough he will be on his own and have to figure out how to have self control.
I had gone back downstairs after the first complaint from the first teen, and as I was down there the basement dweller comes out of his room and said something like "What the fuck are you doing ?" SUPER loudly and I said "Shhh!!" As the other young adult was sleeping in the other basement room and I was worried he was going to wake him. I had been very quite so as to not disturb the sleeping person but the sibling who was in the OTHER room with the door shut heard me anyway!
At that point I just ignored the abusive manner of his rudeness and answered "Filling the water pitcher"
BUT knowing the kid was awake, after I was laying in my bed I remembered that this kid is going back to college and will need to get the required COVID test to move back to campus.
Since I am driving him back soon, I thought I best ask if he is aware of the requirement and since he thinks he is an adult and professes to want to take care of self without interference, I wanted to respect that aspiration but at least ASK if there was a plan and suggest where to go on line to schedule the test if he had not done so yet.
SHEESH! That cursing and calling me a bitch is the response..
I think of this kid as very emotionally stunted in his growth and very emotionally immature
