My 11 year old is not dealing well with our divorce, I was never the one to disipline, my ex was and my son his very angry about the divorce even though he knows that his father is an alcoholic and has abused drugs. He is allowed to seem his father provided he is not under the influence and knows when this is and would call me. My problem is when he gets really angry about something breaking etc or about anything that really upsets me he screams at me and tells me how stupid I am threatens to move in with his dad and says he wishes I would die. On the other hand if I say call your father or something like that he just falls into a mess of crying. He worries if I get home late because he's afraid something has happened to me and usally acts well with hugs and kisses etc and doesn't like me to go anywhere without him. I haven't grounded him for this behaviour but after acting like this and he calms down he is fine and understands he has over reacted or these actions are unacceptable.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
