Three kids, our daughter is in a math class in a tutoring center because she was falling behind in math. Pre-Rp I stayed out of the homework help most of the time and let my wife handle it. Our daughter is 11.
So basically my wife is stubborn/short temper just like all the women in her family. Especially when it comes to school. We have been working on it little by little everyday and she has improved tremendously judging by the sample tests quizzes.
I missed the bulk of the fight, but apparently daughter wants out of the class, which lasts another few weeks. With the reasoning of not having enough free time and that she's better now. Walked right into my wife yelling at her at the kitchen table.
When I asked what was going on, my daughter was crying at the kitchen table saying her mom called her stupid. Got the full story told her to downstairs and I talked to the wife. Apparently she did call her stupid, this particular kid of mine is sensitive to any words insulting intelligence.
Didn't raise my voice, but told her I don't ever want to hear that she called one of our children by anything but their names, just like they will do the same. Told her it's not my problem that her father left their mother call them every name under the sun, but I won't tolerate that shit in my house.
Had a talk with daughter alone, told her she will be staying in the class because she's doing so well. Took the kids out for ice cream and daughters mood completely changed.
Wife was being stubborn and said she was sleeping on the couch. Middle of the night I use the bathroom downstairs and give her a smirk. Five minutes later she's in our room all over me.
Pre-Rp me would have probably called her a bitch in front of the kids and got into an argument of my own. I feel like I could of done/said more for whatever reason. Words can really fuck a kid up no matter where they come from.
