I sit here writing this in tears. I a so sad. I feel alone in the world with no one to talk to. My son is being ignored by my husband and I know that this is killing him. What can I do? My son is constantly disapointing hy husband he has no mercy. He is a child and yes, he lies,cheats and tries to get away with certain things but isn't that most kids? My son is a good kid. I fear that my husband is killing him inside and I am unsure what to do. Last week my son did not turn in his homework for 2 days and did not tell my husband, he told me. Well my husband found out and grounded him for 2 days. My sun had a field trip on Sat so he decided to ground him on Sun and Mon instead. So all of Sat he laughed and joked with him like nothing and let him play. Then Sun comes and he still laughed and joked with him some more. So then at lunch time my son is eating and is still humgry and my husband goes crazy. That my son does not exercise enough and he needs to play outside more, blah blah blah. Then he goes on to lecture about how my son never gets first place in anything and anything good he does is because of us. And my son is sitting there in tears wondering what he did, he just wants more food. So after 15 mins I told him to stop then he went crazy on me. But I am tired of this this happens way too often. He is holding stuff against this kid from when he was 4 and 5 GET OVER IT! He is ten now and yes he drives me crazy but he is still my baby. I can't take it anymore I can't be the refore. My son is not perfect but he is not the monster my husband makes him out to be. My husband claims to love him like his own but if he did he would not talk to him like this. He does this to me to by the way. I don't know what to do. I am in the middle.
