I'm at my wits end, I can't take this anymore. Children Mental Health will NOT return a phone call, my doctor doesn't believe me there is anything wrong with my son and yet I spend everyday in a battle with him. He's constantly screaming at me, crying, throwing things at me, telling me he hates me, threatening to break things in the house, etc etc. I can't do it anymore! He's completely exhausting me. I have the book everyone suggested, The Explosive Child, and YES that is my son, especially the story about "Helen". I can't seem to get any help, my landlady is threatening to kick us out because of his behaviour, we had a family dinner for his birthday yesterday and I was so embarrassed, he was screaming and telling everyone he hated them and would not say thank you for anything, I just wanted to curl up and die. My family thinks he's horrible and that I'm not parenting him, I'm doing the best I can as a single parent working 2 jobs and trying to raise 3 kids. My other 2 have difficulties of their own that I have to deal with but he is so intense and extreme I can't take anymore.
