As you may or may not know from my recent posts I've been going through a really rough time the last few weeks (depression). I came really close to overdosing on some of my medication on Saturday just to get my husband's attention and convince him that positive thinking would not cure my bp and maybe get into the hospital where somebody actually cared how bad I felt. Anyhow, we have since had a talk and he is coming around a little but that's not the problem. The problem is this. Our 17-year-old has pulled some boneheaded (but typical teenager) stuff lately. My DH grounded him from *everything* (even books). Guess who's left at the house with the aforementioned 17-year-old (DH works nights)? To top it off DH is leaving for a hunting trip tomorrow and won't be home until Sunday so I get to deal with a sulky 17-year-old all by myself while trying to recover from my own depression. One rule we have is that is one of us doles out a punishment the other doesn't change it. I'm thinking of breaking that rule. A friend suggested ungrounding my teenager while dad was gone and letting him deal with it when he gets back since the issue was really between them anyway. I think I'll make this topic number one at therapy tomorrow but I'd really like to know what you guys/gals think.
