Insert brawl story, minus adult involvement. There are three little boys who make noting but trouble. Well one of them stood on our back stoop and my kids knowing we can not go to the street that the children involved in the brawl. My youngest sons do not understand that other kids from that street can still be here. They were instigated, but my younger two tried to get rid of some kids and picked up a knife and threatened them.
I have made it clear that he can not ever pick up a knife and threaten people, but once again I had parents in front of my house, saying "I'll not have my children threatened." Did they forget that these are kids. Kids that do not know everything, but what were they going to do call the police on an 8 year old? He never left the house as far as I know, but one child brought a rotten egg and apple core to throw at our door, then there is the mud smear.
Kids threaten each other all the time.They say and do dumb things because they are KIDS. My god, I do not believe mine to be perfect and now living in the hood they have learned some really poor behaviors, but what is so wrong that people can not understand that children are just children.
My two oldest are going to start counseling the same day same time different counselors. I guess now I have a reputation, so it was a point of saying I am coming to you as a parent, without anyone else. I tried to explain that I had taken care of the problem and would make sure it was taken care of, but kids are kids! The ones stealing and fighting and drawing in appropriate things on our home.
I am trying to ignore all this as I have learned my lesson in letting the little dumb shit getting me riled up. My psychiatrists tells me the woman was asking for it. Not much of that is going to matter, but I was doing what the woman intimated she was doing. I went to the house I was having the problem. I just dared to say police.
So, I had two sets of parents who came back mad to chew my ass, but really when are people going to realize some of this mess is just kids.
