More lies and more sneakiness!!!
Uggh. I am going insane with my 9 year old ss. I posted a while ago about his lying. It got better for a bit, but is back again. He is still sneaky about things too.
Yesterday ds was gone for the day. He comes home and something of his is broken. (before leaving ds cleaned their whole room and ss played for a bit and left stuff all over their floor. Ds asked ss to clean up his mess and ss screamed he hated him and wanted to kill him. I talked to ss and let him know that was not acceptable. I pointed out how hard ds worked on cleaning their room and how nice it had looked. I talked to him about the importance of cleaning up behind yourself. I talked to him about how mean his words were and that we do not allow talk like that in this house. He apologized to ds)
So anyways ss tells ds he has no idea how the toy broke. So I question ss and can tell he is lying so I start mentioning a possible scenerio of how it happened and then ss gave me the shocked look and admitted to hitting the toy against something and breaking it. I made him apologize and told him that he may not use ds's things without his permission. I told him to apologize and grounded him from video games for a day.
This morning ss wakes up for school and is a crabby mess! I knew he must have snuck video games in at night because that is usually why he would wake up a monster.
So I look at his psp is still on my dresser where we make him put it each night because we have had issues in the past with him playing it. I go look in his room and the old ds that we had in the basement is plugged into the outlet by his bed and the ds is sitting in arms reach under his bed.
DH flipped the screen up and attached a stickee note with a message on it saying "if you are reading this you know you are caught. Bring the ds to me right now! Love Mom and Dad.
So we will see tonite what happens with that. Afterschool the kids got home before I did. They know afterschool they can help themselves to a healthy snack (fruit, granola bar, etc.) They know no junk food!
Well I bought cookies the other day and the box was still sealed. I get home and see the cookies on the counter opened. I ask who opened it and the others said ss did and he ate them! He knows darn well he can not have those as a snack....but since no adults wer standing over him he ate them anyways! I talked to him and asked him when he forgot our rule of no junk food without permission. He shrugged his shoulders. I told him not to bother having dessert with the rest of us after dinner because he already helped himself to his. I seriously feel like going to get McDonalds sundaes or something for everyone else tonite to teach him a lesson!
I am just mad. He got grounded from video games and then snuck them anyways. He knows the junkfood rule and he still ate cookies afterschool. Not too long ago I found wrappers under his bed from him sneaking junk food in the middle of the night! I should not have to keep junk food locked up! Everyone else can eat it in moderation. He does not follow our rules and lies. I am so sick of it!
