oh dear - Sounds like one of those days. Things can only get better ?????!

ah custy, how horrible. Where do you think older son has gone?
how old is your daughter? (I can't remember)I 'hated' my mum for lots of things when i was younger but it was real hate IFYKWIM - more teenage angst. It must be hard for her I guess.

am tempted to say "what a load of self indulgent old tripe", but I won't because it isn't really.

Aren't children horrible sometimes?

pour a drink.

And open the chocolate.

And DON'T give them any.

I'm listening. Trying to think of something constructive. Nope, can't.

If son's gone more than 4 hours you can ring police?

Daughter doesn't hate you, hates having to wear hearing aid - but you know that anyway.

custy, I hope you don't mind me saying this, but I creased up laughing at your post - It sounds like the day from hell, but your post was so brief and matter of fact, finished off with "ta fer listenin" .

Seriously though - hope your ds returns and tomorrow is a better day!

Good grief! Whatever did he think his dad was going to do to him? Send DH out in the cold to look for him (while you eat chocs and drinlk drink. MI is very wise in these matters)

Dear Custardo,

I was just on this site to put an ad in the 'media' section and I saw this thread. I am making a programme where we will be offering advice and coaching with a team of experts to parents who are at their wit's end dealing with nightmare teens. Obviously we're not assigning blame - we acknowledge that parenting is really difficult and want to work with a family to help them live together again.

Now hopefully the other day was a one-off. But if you do feel you'd like to find out more (no committment necessary) please give me a call on 0207 6332512 - I'll be there 'til 6. Or check out our ad in the media section!
