One step forward, two steps back

Since I wrote the last post:

I found three hidden pee filled pull ups in my nine year old's room.  He hasn't pee in months and now all in one week he filled three of them and hid them.

We found them because of the smell.

Also, he went into my bedroom and took new pull ups to pee in without us knowing.


For the record, every question I asked, he told the truth.

We were happy about that part.


Secondly, Lizzy has been attacking her sister on the bus.  Today was about the fourth incident.  She was mad that my husband didn't let her take her new Chapstick to school.  My husband didn't know my other daughter had hers in her back pack.  Lizzy and my other daughter have an assigned shared seat on the bus.  Lizzy  punched my other daughter in the head this morning while complaining about the Chapstick issue.

So, I will be driving Lizzy to school for the next week because apparently my idea of dealing with this was to punish myself by telling Lizzy she won't be riding the bus for a while.

I should have thought that one through better.

I have been dealing with issues with my real daughter and angernissues. She takes her anger out on her brother and pushes him. I had viokent issues in my past also that caused me to yell at my kids and treat them bad. Now that I realize my problem I am working on fixing them. I was a foster child and have many stories to tell that causes me to be the way I was and am. If you adoptive the child you are referring to, theN there are reasons why she lashes out.
