Am I Talking to Myself?



I narrate my life in my head a lot. I know it sounds weird and kinda crazy , but it’s me. If you have ever seen the movie Stranger Than Fiction, it’s kind of like that actually.  I debate every decision in my head until I am 100% certain it is the right thing to do. That isn’t what I am talking about though. 

Lately Sammy has been ignoring me. Nate always takes some time to process what I have asked of him. It seems like he ignores me too. Then there are the teenagers. I ask them to do something, they always respond with “Sure, mom” and then… they don’t do it. I don’t know which is worse. Actively ignoring or saying yes and doing nothing.

I have had enough, either way.

I need ideas on how to get them to listen, first time. Or at the very least acknowledge me when I am speaking to them.

Any Suggestions?
