    I am so cross with the person l gave birth to 15 years ago, this would be Liam. I know l am very hormonal to this week but he deserves such a b... kicking, if l went near him l think he would suffer.
    Quick story to say why l am so angry. For christmas we took out a contract phone for him. Very indulgent but we thought hey this poor boy had his phone stolen and if it's insured etc etc. Also he was keeping his old payg phone to go out and play footie etc. So he got a very nice Sony Eric blah blah C905.
    Yesterday he strolls in and says this phone is insured "innit" and i say well depending on what has happened. The stupid boy had taken it out and not his old one. Well he had played football and rolled around like the numpty he is. Dropped it on concrete and full screen smashed and the pixel screen gone.
    It was his attitude that has nfuriated me the most. I could knock him out.
    It wasn't my fault. Well yes it was you shouldn't of had it.
    Well here is the upshot , l am so disgusted by his attitude to money and the cost of it i have laid these punishments down.
    1) No phone no going out. So he has to buy a cheap vodafone phone to put his sim card in.
    2) he now pays the 20 contract.
    3) He is going on a school ski trip in April at a cost of 629. The decision to send him was made before the eco turndown. As you know Mr Bumbles job is going. But we thought no he can go we can do this. But with this now in mind l am making him buy his ski waer. A jacket off ebay and we are hiring saloppettes (sp). Thankfully we have borrowed alot but l need to hit him hard in his pocket as this will hurt him the most.
    Sorry for this huge rant as you can tell l am very angry and upset .

    The effect of punishment via fiscal responsibility can be amazing. It's a lesson all of us have to learn--and sometimes learning early is a very good thing. :)

    He's a good kid, Siobhan, and some day will be a wonderful, responsible adult. And will have difficulty admitting that mum was right! :D
