Hi, My name is Kat. I have 2 kids but my son is my problem child. He constantly lies, steals, ignores rules and blames everything on everyone else, including me. Today he had a police officer come and talk to him at school because he swiped some little girl's Nintendo DS. He also got suspended for one day, it's a really good thing I don't have class tomorrow. He goes to see his psychiatrist tomorrow but, she will just give him more excuses to explain his behavior. We have tried everything with this kid, he has been grounded off and on (more on than off) for what seems like forever, we have taken everything away from him. He has been in counseling for 4 years and we have tried all of their suggestion and nothing has worked. I am really at a loss because I have no idea what to do anymore. I really don't want him to ruin his life by becoming a criminal at such a young age but, it looks like that is exactly where he is headed. At this point, I am really looking for people to talk to who understand what is going on and won't treat me like the worst mom in the world for punishing him. It's not like I hit him or anything, all I did was take Halloween away and that apparently made me the worst mom ever. Anyway, thanks to those of you who actually sat and read through all of my whining. I am really hoping to make some friends here that will be supportive of my situation and not judgmental.
