I have 4 kids 16, 12, 10 and 7 and have been a single parent for 6yrs. Wind back 5 yrs and my children were very loving to each other and I always got comments on how close they were and kind to each other. Now all they do is fight.
The 12yr old has always been kind and sensitive but now he can get mean and say some horrible things. The 10yr old throws tantrums and screams and when I tell her I need a few minutes to myself she gets worse. The 7yr old annoys everyone and when I am talking to him he just smiles even when I am angry, he says he can’t help it. The 16 yr old boy gives me attitude and gets grumpy when I ask for help around the house.
I don’t know where I have gone wrong. It is driving me crazy.
