I wasted 2 hours on Saturday trying to access a website for my 5 year old son, whose magic code was rejected.
He insisted to me that his user name was “Bobthe”. I could not get him on line and sent 6 e mails requesting help. I got 6 replies today and his user name was a very bad spelling of chocolate cake. I am going to buy him one and let him eat it all!
When he returns from his father he claims he is starving having eaten nothing for 2 days, that he can go to bed when he likes etc.
Children sometimes forget, sometimes make things up and sometimes lie. It is best to filter what they tell you, and if anything causes concern then to raise it with your ex partner in a non confrontational manner.
Different households have different rules. Give your children a break. They may come back from dad’s and slam the fridge door because that is the only way it closes at dad’s. They may forget to take their shoes off because mum does not make them. They may leave the toilet seat up because they have been visiting dad! Imagine how hard it is for children having to learn 2 sets of rules – none of which are their own!
