Inner family conflict anyone ???

My son came to the table this morning, wearing his school uniform, covered with mad stains…
I’ve pointed that out nicely and asked if i can help bring him a new pair to change.
“no” he said “nobody sees it. nobody cares ”
“I do” i answered. “i think its better you go clean and tidy to school, for your own good feeling”
“no, no need” he continued “its easier this way”..
Well, i was hungry, – 1st mistake
We had 7 min before the bus comes, time pressure – 2nd mistake
“I can’t believe you don’t care!, after we pay so much money for school and uniforms! ” I lost my temper…”just change it and let me wash it!”
And then it was his turn to loose it “leave me alone! I want to go like this!”
My husband that moment realized there is a total miscommunication, both of us hungry, both of us totally blind to each others needs…
Me- the grown up- behaving like a teenager :((((
What do you think he could have done to help us?
Will let you know what he actually did later

Dana Bachar Grossman founded Med8 in 2013 to promote the art of effective communication. The focus was to provide practical training and mediation services to streamline communication, reducing overhead costs, within organisation.

However, over time, partly due to her own growing family, she also recognised a need for Med8’s expertise within educational institutes and with parents and couples.
