RAD in action!
tomorrow jacky leaves for camp. he has known all week that the room must be cleaned first. he refuses. i have told him repeatedly that the truck will not leave the driveway until the room is clean. i am not backing down. i do not care if it is a power struggle. the room is disgusting and smells. my room is across from his and i do not like the smell emmitting from his doorway(urine). i will not cean it. my husband helped him clean it 2 weeks ago for 2 solid hours during the home run derby and missed the entire derby. you cannot tell that he did that. we are done. he wants to go shopping for sandals today. i told him that when the room is clean, we will go. if the room is not clean in time to shop for shoes before stores close, so be it. as much as i want him to have fun at camp, i do not wish to smell his room while he is away. everyone talks about how miserable/sad RAD kids are. what about the innocent parents who adopt them? nobody ever really talks about what WE go through. i am tired of urine taking over MY life. so there.
