It was as I thought. Both of the kids were a mess. My son gets over it quicker than my daughter. I had to work the night they came home so I gave my daughter a long hug and a talk. I told her it’s ok to be sad but not ok to stay in her room for hours or days on end.
She was told she couldn’t stay in her room all night. She came out and though I’m sure she has shed some more tears, she is not moping. We bought some crafts for her to do since she seemed to develop a fondness for them.
My son on the other hand is just annoyed I will not let him play on the computer all day. He has to practice for band camp next week but of course does not want to!
And so, we are back to our normal life. Teenage angst. YAY!
