Right then chaps & chapessâ a bit of advice (good & ridiculous) required. Thought Iâd stick this in the NAAFI as at the moment Iâm fuming & some of the answers this may generate may calm me down. My 18yr old nephew is currently being an âAâ class prick. Heâs just finished his doing his A-Levels, he wantâs to go to Uni & then join up, hopefully going to RMAS. Heâs already hitting the weights & running quite hard to get fitter. However, heâs being a complete wanker at the moment to his parents. He doesnât do drugs, in fact he recently fell out with a mate of his who has been doing drugs. But he does drink too much, in my opinion for an 18yr old. Anyway, last night he came home pissed with some âfriendsâ, he then proceeded to play loud music in the garden. When asked by his mum (my sister) to turn it down, as his 12yr old sister was in bed & had school the next day, apart from being bloody anti-social to the neighbours. He kicked off, calling his mum âa cuntâ amongst other things. When his dad (who is also a prick & no longer drinks, although that hasnât cured his âarsehole-nessâ) went to have a word with him around about midnight, my nephew smacked him over the head 4 times with the end of a wooden broom causing a 3â gash, which resulted in him having to go casualty. My nephew stormed off only to come home in the early hours when only my sister & my other nephew & niece were in the house. After being let in (his dad had taken his keys off him prior to being bashed) by my sister, he started to have a go at her. Resulting in him punching my sister in the upper left arm (she now has a nice fist size bruise) before he stormed off to bed. My sister was quite naturally scared being in the house with him without my brother-in-law being there after that. This morning heâs slightly, & I mean slightly, apologetic. But he still thinks itâs everyone elseâs fault not his own. Even his younger (15yr old) brother doesnât want to speak to him. Now, my sister wants me to have a word with him, as she thinks heâll listen to me. So Iâm going around there tomorrow night. That way, things may have cooled off slightly. Because at the moment I just want to rip his head off & give him a good beating myself. However I really donât think that will solve anything in the long run. But not having kids myself yet, let alone kids that age. I really donât know how to handle it. I need to try & get through to him that if he hits my sister again Iâll bury him. That smacking his dad around (although I donât like him) is not on either. And that if he keeps up this attitude of being hard done by, heâs got no chance of becoming an officer, because heâll probably end up with a criminal record. Believe it or not, but he is a really bright, hard working kid. I think the drink is the biggest problem & the fact that he thinks heâs the big âI amâ. So over to my fellow Arrsers to try and give me some advice on the matter. Feel free to PM me if your answer is too helpful for the NAAFI. Cheers.
