Last night my 14 year old said the laksa soup I had made for dinner “looked like vomit” and refused to eat it. I was hurt and furious. Normally loves Laksa and it’s a treat. So I told him he could have some fruit, nothing else, and to go to his room with no technology.
Let him later make a peanut butter sandwich and watch a film with us, even though I didn’t get an apology.
His hormones are rife and I remember how difficult and moody that made me at his age. Essentially he is a great kid.
My question is HOW do other parents deal with this sort of thing???
