Yesterday, my son and I had an argument about homework not being done before the TV went on. It is one of many such arguments. We both had a yelling match and I said something I regret deeply. I told him that if he couldn't abide by the rules of the house, he could go live with his father and abide by his rules (which will not likely be as strictly enforced). Unfortunately, my son took this all very heavily, as I should have expected. Now, despite my apologies and pleas for forgiveness, he is standing firm. Says he doesn't like me or love me any more and wants to be away from me. It's day 2 and he is still adamant. It's treating me up because I feel like I've made a fatal mistake.
