If my child was cussing me out, *I* would be the one not talking to him, till he could get a civil tongue in his head.

Oh, he may have been asking to go to dad's, and he may have CHOSEN to go to his dad's, but that isn't going to keep him from thinking "she kicked me out" when you told him that he either needed to be respectful or go live with his dad.
