Who’s The Boss?
August 30, 2007
Some days I feel I’m at the end of my rope with my oldest. He has taken to screaming, yelling, hitting, and name calling alot lately when things don’t go his way. Tuesday’s trip to the playground found him sitting on the bench for most of the time due to, first throwing rocks, then proceeding to call me “stupid mommy” repeatedly during his original 4 minute time-out sentence. The tiniest thing seems to set him off. When he’s good, he’s the best, but when he’s bad, watch out!
Last night in the car he was doing something naughty, and in my frustration I asked, “Is that how Jesus wants you to act?”. His reply: “Well….Jesus isn’t my boss.” I informed him that Jesus was his boss, as was I. He then said, “God’s the boss, and Jesus is his son”. I told him we would continue this discussion with our pastor when he recovers from his surgery. Sometimes he makes ME want to scream!
