I'm angry.

IMG_5485_convert_20140517114723.jpg

It was cold and windy this morning. Some areas in Hokkaido have even snow today.

These days I have fights against my son everyday. He has resisted since he entered a school. I think I have a kind of mild character, but I can't be mild in front of him. I'm afraid how he will be when he is a teenager.

My parents sometimes send some gifts to us. They say that because they want to talk with my son on a phone. So they always pack something my son likes as well in a box.
Yesterday, a box was sent from my parents, too. Since I knew their feelings I said thank you and passed the phone to my son soon. I wanted him to talk a lot with them, but he said thank you in a low voice and just only "yes" repeatedly in a dull mood. And moreover, he pushed a speaker button that can listen to my parent without holding and started to fiddle with my cell phone. I got angry and I showed him a message on a piece of paper, but he ignored me!

After he hung up the phone, I scolded him. It was not once. These days he has always acted like that.
My anger hasn't settled yet. I want to go on a trip alone.

It was cold and windy this morning. Even this late in the season, some areas of Hokkaido still have snow.

Ever since the beginning of this school year, my son and I have been having daily arguments. Although I think I have a mild character, I can't appear to be mild in my son's eyes. I fear how he will act when he becomes a teenager should I display weakness now.

My parents sometimes send us gifts. They always include something for my son in their packages. They say that by giving my son something he likes, they will get to talk with him over the phone when we call to thank them.

Yesterday, another package arrived from my parents. As I knew how much my parents looked forward to talking to my son on the phone, I thanked them, and I then passed the phone to my son. Although I wanted him to engage in a meaningful conversation with my parents, my son merely thanked them in a low voice and he continued the rest of the conversation by just repeatedly replying with a "yes" in an unenthusiastic manner. Moreover, he turned the speaker mode off so we couldn't hear the conversation, and he then started to fiddle with the cell phone. I got angry and I showed him a message *I wanted him to read to my parents, but he just ignored me!

*It is not clear as to what the message contained. I don't know if the message merely wanted him to stop fooling around with the phone, or if you had wanted him to do something else. It should have been fully explained.

After he hung up the phone, I scolded him. This was not an isolated incident. These days, he often acts in this manner.

My anger has yet to settle. I so desire to just go on a trip alone.


Re: English Corrections

Hi, shiroi tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.

After I read your corrections, I knew some of my English weren't conveyed right because of my poor English.

My son turned the handsfree mode on so that not only him but also I could hear the conversation. Since he replied only "yes", I wrote that stop fooling around with the phone and what he should reply on a piece of paper not to hear my voice to my parent.

I hope you understand what I wanted to say now.

It makes sense now. You must have been very frustrated at the time :)
