How can I not be upset at my son for talking to someone about a job his dad was trying to get.it is the job he always wanted

a job he has a passion for. our son can't understand why we would be upset.he dad had tears in his eyes when he heard what our son did

You don't make it clear as to whether he actually got the job or was just talking to someone about it. How did junior KNOW dad wanted this job so badly? Look, I guess in this economy its dog eat dog. There's not enuff jobs for us, our returning veterans, AND all of the illegals flooding into our country and sucking up our jobs & getting medical care & schooling for free. From now on I suggest that you'd better keep SOME details of your lives away from your son before he tries something like this again. He doesn't seem to have much empathy for others, sorry to say.

I do believe you are right about that

Toadie, I'm so sorry to say something like I did, but MOST kids wouldn't go after a job that their father wanted so badly. Unfortunately, I believe jobs will continue to be scarce & the 2 of you need to get by in this world too. Its harder & harder for those of us who are getting older to be hired too-age discrimination IS alive and well in America today! I wish your hubby the best as far as getting this job.

Did anyone explain to your son the importance of not talking to anyone about this? Did your son talking to someone wreck your husband's chance of getting the job? Is there some way that your husband could talk to the person(s) making the decision and explain what happened?

Then it sounds like your son either didn't care or maybe was trying to "get back" at dad for something. Either way, it's not right. But kids do stupid things. In the future, I'd keep important things between just yourself and your husband. If your son doesn't need to know, he doesn't need to know. I'm sorry, but I guess that's the "live and learn" lesson here; pick yourselves up and dust off, try again.

Wow a little harsh. 1st instead of talking about illegals be pro active apparently you are a VERY ANGERY PERSON. With people like you no wonder there is a crack in our foundation.

You should talk with your husband and see if the two discussed this new job opportunity and make sure there was not a misunderstanding between the two before you start thinking the worst about YOUR SON..

IF IT IS NOT a misunderstanding between the two. Then ask him directly and calmly about this issue and let him know how EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED YOU ARE IN HIM....

We cannot keep blaming OTHERS FOR OUR ISSUES LIKE THE PREVIOUS WRITER.

THIS IS CLEARLY AN EXAMPLE OF SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT HAVE THEIR DUCKS IN A ROW AND DOES NOT KNOW THE DEFINITION OF PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY....

Jadedmama made a valid point. As far as I can see, you're the only one using so many capital letters. Please stop "shouting".

toadie. I answered your question yesterday. We all agreed it was a pretty crummy thing for your son to do. Children live what they learn. There is no way you can't be upset. I'm sorry this is happening to your family. It's very painful I'm sure. Someday, your son will understand what he did. There must be some reason for this one upmanship.
