the other day the little girl called me a name, I can’t remember what it was but it pissed me off so I sent to her room.
The wife said something like "really? If she just calls me a name, I ignore it because she knows it doesn’t bother me and she’ll stop. She wants a reaction".
In my mind, it’s a matter of respect. I would have never talked to my parents the ways these bratty kids talk to their parents because I wouldn’t be here writing this blog today and that’s one of the problems. People don’t have respect anymore. The kids don’t listen to us and the wife has no respect for me, or so it feels like that when almost every attempt for me to do something to correct a behavior is met with a shot logic excuse in her mind.
I just wonder how different and incompatible we’re becoming.
