11 days of teenage hell!!!
Posted 15 May 2008 - 03:24 AM
After that, I decided that I wasn't going to watch the kids for him anymore while he goes off on holidays. So then they end up getting a free trip to Arizona for a week and decide they are going to stay for a feww extra days to do their own thing, so it is now an 11 day trip. I heard through the grapevine that the girls mother was asking who was watching the kids, and she was told that my FI and I were. Then on Sat evening, he called to ask my FI when we were going to be down there, which we still had not been asked to watch them, so it was assummed that we would. So then it was time to pack up stuff for the 4 of us again and head out there.
Now the 14 year old has got a real attitude problem, and has always gotten everything her little heart desires, and has rarely heard the word 'no'. My FBIL also has a difficult time seeing this, and figures everyone picks on her and that my FI and her just butt heads. The problem started early on as my FI asked her to clean up her mess, and she refused, watched TV and when he shut off the TV, she had a tempertanrum that you have to see to understand. She was told that she was to stay at home while her dad was gone, and that he didn't want her going to her grandma's (my fmil). As soon as my FI wasn't paying attention, she got on the phone and called her grandma.
To make a long story short, she only stayed at the house for the first 2 nights they were gone, didn't call, didn't ask permission, except when she called her dad in Arizona to ask him, and then he text messaged my FI to let him know. She screamed and yelled at my on the phone, then cried to my FI that I was mean and called her to yell at her. Then we never heard from her for 2 days, even though she was supposed to be home. Once my FBIL got home, she was mad because he wouldn't drive into town to get her first before just going home. Then when my FI had to run into town, he picked her up, which she was not happy.
There are planning another trip to Chicago on the 25th for her job, and I told her tonight that I wouldn't be watching the then, as I have better things to do than deal with that crap.
Just remember that this is a very short version of what happened, but anyone that has or knows any lippy teenagers, you could probably see a lot more of the picture.

I sounds like you were more than generous to watch them a few times and it seems like no one appreciates it. Good job at saying "no" to them, and if they ask you why...be honest.
