Ever have one of those days (weeks... months... years...) where you
feel like saying screw the attaching, I just want obedience? Ever
sometimes think maybe heartless robots aren't so bad? Like yeah I may
not have a relationship with them later, but at least they'd behave
now? Or yeah they obey out of fear but at least they obey?
Yeah, I've totally never felt that way, ever. Really. Just thought
maybe some of you other trauma mamas have. *sigh*

Can I just skip to the end? The part where they're healed (or not), and I don't have to deal with them when I'm hormonal or overwhelmed or they had a bad day at school...?

I don't like it when I feel like this.

That's exactly where my youngest is. He mostly obeys, doesn't pitch fits, kinda does his schoolwork mostly well. But he's an empty shell. Yes, it's easier without the constant arguing or attention seeking behaviors. He still does them, passive aggressively. I want to try and hang on until he turns the corner. I won't give up but it's definitely up to him. Sad thing is, he was the youngest of the ones we adopted.
