I love my son but I see so much of his
I love my son but I see so much of his father in him and I just want to slap the crap out of him. I hate the way he bullies his younger brother and is so controlling over him- but then takes whatever he wants of his brothers room without asking. If his brother did that he'd hit the roof. He doesn't take care of anything, doesn't want certain toys anymore but refuses to let them go. He is just like his dad. His dad was a great big abusive creep. Thankfully I moved away before he had the chance to see much of his dad's behavior in action but his dad is still mean and hateful. His dad never even called for our youngest son's birthday, never came to school functions- basically stayed gone. But when we moved he screamed b***** murder that I was trying to take his kids away. He's not even listed as an emergency medical contact for his own children. He doesn't know their middle names even. But both have the habit of always taking and never giving. Don't get me wrong- my son's not an 'out of control teen'. He pushes it just like any other kid but I panic because I don't want to see him become his father- terrorizing and trying to control some girl he meets up with, taking from her and never offering anything in return. I don't want him terrorizing some girl the way his dad terrorized me. It's like they both have an inability to recognize that they are existing with other people. The only thing that matters is what they want and what they need. If someone were on fire but they were thirsty, they would take the glass of water for themselves rather than help the person on fire. Unless someone is watching- then they both turn into Captain Pleasant. I worry my son will end up like his dad. A great big j*** that no one can stand to be around.
