First let me say my daughter is a wonderful loving mom. She is a single mother of 2 beautiful boys age 14 and 12. I am sad that they are of the age now that video games have overtaken their lives. They live with me and in my house we have always had rules. I work 12 hour shifts and papaw works 6- 10 hour days. We expect everyone to do chores and that includes the boys. Mom thinks I overstep my boundaries if I step in when she does not enforce these rules. At this time she is not speaking to me again because I told her my 14 year old grandson will not disrespect me after telling me he would not do the chore I asked him to do. The boys spend many hours on the video games. Mom says that if he plays baseball that day he is too tired to do his chores. It makes me sad to see them isolated to the point that they would rather be in the room than outside or even attend family functions. If the oldest gets in trouble she won't take the games because then he fights with the youngest until she gives them back because he wakes me and papaw up while we sleep (3rd shifters) Literally have to have a sitter come over until we get up so we can sleep. Mom works so hard. I know she thinks we are picking on the kids and that is so far from the truth. We love them with all our hearts. This thing about picking your battles drives me crazy. I don't remember it ever being a battle when mine were little. I said it! You did it !
