I Want To Give Myself a Knock in the Head!
I got pulled into the drama again!
It’s dark out. The football game ended hours ago. It’s way past the time she said she would be home,
Is she dead? Is she being raped by crazed drunks?
“Where have you been? It’s 10 o’clock on a school night! You said you would be home by 8. I have been texting and calling for 2 hours! Have you done your homework?”
I know I am overreacting. I feel foolish and out of control.
If I learn nothing else, I wish I would keep anger out of my interactions.
Anger allows my teen to dismiss me as mean and out of control. Anger allows my teen to use me as a scapegoat for their poor choices.
