I am very new to this, so please forgive me for anything I do wrong... My difficult child is thisclose to being 13; he's generally (85% of the time) a sweetheart. However, I have caused the following problem and don't know how to correct it. It's all my fault and I know it. Anyway, I am the only help I've got with my son. No siblings, no parents, no sitters, no friends. It's okay, but it means I have to take my son EVERYWHERE with me. About a year ago, I let him get a toy at the store while I was necessity shopping. Once turned into everytime. And in every store. He picked out a drill at Home Depot today. I didn't need the drill, but now I have it. If I tell him "No" I could end up hurt. That's my reality. He's not quite as big as me in height, and I definitely have a good 40 pounds on him, but OMG he's so freakishly strong for someone that's only 5' tall and 90 pounds!!! I've been rationalizing that a sitter would cost me $20 or more, so let him get the toy or whatever, but this has got to stop. My husband isn't in-state right now, so he couldn't help if he knew what to do. Is there some sort of professional that can help me figure out how to handle and correct this situation? I'm so lost and I am so embarrassed to have gotten us into this dilemma.
