Hi, I'm new to this board. I have a very high-spirited 14 year old boy who is in 8th grade. He's addicted to Gears of War, X-Box Live. I've taken that away from him. His mouth gets him into more trouble. He has been suspended from school about 2 months ago. Now, I have to go to another meeting this afternoon over at his school. The part about all of this that is bothering me is that I feel I'm failing as a mother. I have gone through a devastating divorced that had me sidelined. I'm in therapy and I take meds. My ex husband and I were discussing our son going over to stay at his house for a couple of weeks. Somehow, that turned into my ex trying to get legal custody of our son. I was panicked, overly tired, and my hormones were running amok the other day when my ex wrote to me that he had met with our son's favorite teacher and he agreed that my ex should have custody of our son. My ex is a narcissistic, verbally abusive, controlling and manipulative jerk. I wrote an email to this teacher and to the assistant principal of my son's school. I looked like a total loon and I work in the school system!!! I'm worried about today. My ex keeps me off balance all the time. He was never a very caring father until all of the sudden. He doesn't work and has all day to do whatever he wants (meddle, create problems, play with people's heads). Thanks for reading this.
