Getting difficult child to do ANYTHING is a battle. Brushing teeth, combing hair, showers, homework, going to Cub Scouts... etc. I am so tired of nagging all the time and fighting all of these battles. Actually 2 things are not a battle for the most part - 1) going to bed, 2) getting up. Everything else is a battle - even things he wants to do (go somewhere, etc.). So what do I do? I am tired. I am sick of it. I don't want to give us on my son because I love him dearly - but I cannot keep doing things this way. I don't want to fight over homework. I want it to stay at school. I have enough battles at home. I just want to crawl in bed and not get up. I can't do that though. I also can't let my 10 year old son quit life either. I am going back to read my old posts because I am certain I have written all of this before. I need help. Medication doesn't help. Counseling doesn't help. husband and I are not getting along.
