I have no where else to turn, so I will take any advise I can get. I am a mom of 3 boys JOSE-12 Alex-11 Jared-8 ALex is a gifted child who won the citizens award for the 6th grade-He is in REACH (gifted program) -never gives me problems Jared is athletic and a joy for his teachers at school. Now comes Jose----He has been on adhd medication since PreK. He is also on an anti-depressent. He has a learning diorder(digraphia) and has been dianosed with ODD He stays in trouble ALLL the time, and cause our house to be in constant caos. If he gets one more displine referral at school he will be expelled permently. He punches walls, kick things, steal from family members, and is always starting arguments. If you tell him it is raining-he will argue you down and swear it is sunny. He always has to have the last word. Do not know what to do any more. I totally lost it with him this morning and slapped him across the face (only to make matters worse) I have started having anxiety attacks and am now taking medication for this myself. Does anyone have advice....before he ends up if jail or I end up in jail for child abuse!!!!!!
