Okay - today I am fed up! I'm going bonkers and feeling very out of control! My son - who is 15 has his "intrests" which currently is cowboys/western stuff. Well when he gets an interest it is to the smallest minor detail and with this - it's his clothing. "What jeans should I wear? What shirt should I wear? What belt? What buckle? No one can see my buckle with this shirt...!" And then he is changing shoes, belts, buckles, and hats all FLIPPING Day long! To a point of wearing out belts and shoe strings! Of course then I should just go buy him more! I'm almost to the point of taking all of his clothes out of his room and putting them under lock and key - then I pick out the daily outfit and lock things back up again! I hate to deny him his "interests" but holy crimoly he is DRIVING ME NUTS! And this has become his MAJOR source of temper tantrums throughout the day. It starts the minute he comes home from school and goes until bed time!Does anyone else have this type of problem and any suggestions??? I've taken stuff away and threatned until I am blue in the face! WHADDYA DO?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
