My head hurts. More problems with Diego.

I have had to think about taking several decisions today and although I don´t yet know how it will all come out, my head is killing me. Yesterday I had a conversation with Diego. He wanted to do almost as he pleased and I was not going to let him do it. He told me then that I did not know how a teen his age did things and I reached a point where I accepted certain things based on what he said his mother let him. Little did he know (or remembered) that now there is such a thing called whatsapp. My daughter called me, we talked, and it seems that none of the tings Diego told me were things he was allowed to do. Moreover, today he did not wake up in time for school. I am now waiting for him to come. And as far as I can do it, he will be grounded. In fact, we will both we grounded. If I have to check on him, I will not be able to do anything. I will be taking the whole anxoiety pill that my son in law suggested. Clearly, I´m not in age to take care of kids.

No. But it is a wonderful idea that I can talk with my daughter. And she can talk to Diego by phone if needed

I think he's trying to see how far he can go with you. I'm glad you are going to be firm with him.

Looks like I've missed some posts on who Diego is and why you have him. Maybe I better go take a look back.

Diego is my grandson. And his mother is in Europe visiting her older sons. I offered to take Diego as his father is a jerk.

@marsha32 I haven´t been posting due to more problems with him. Yesterday, after many conversations and mails with my daughter, I handed Diego to his father. I just could not cope.

Teenagers can be a handful, they can also be sneaky. I don't envy you.

All has been cleared up. The sneaky one is Diego´s dad.

I couldn´t do otherwise. My daughter got an almost free ticket to go and see her other 2 children. I volunteered to take care of Diego.

Is there any way you can "exit" on this commitment?

No. My daughter is in Europe. But today I will tell him to hand me over the keys even if it means that we will both be grounded in a way. It is only 3 weeks.

it's hard when you have to keep a watch on them. i've experienced that, too, with nephews and nieces.

Part of the trouble is that his father wants to make trouble.

I think that his Dad is making problems. But my youngest daughter came to help.

I would not be able to handle that responsibility either. Glad you found out that he was not being truthful with you. This is a really tough situation. If Diego's mother tells him he is grounded on the phone, then that may be the help you need.

The problem, as I have found, is Diego´s dad. He is a jerk.
