Hi, Just when I thought things were improving slightly last week, things have turned around again. I had surgery for a detached retina recently and cannot drive. An old friend has been coming by daily to run errands, bring dinner etc. and difficult child has decided that this person is taking attention away from him. He is extremely rude, interrupts conversations and says the most inappropriate things. When I talk to difficult child about this he said he will continue this behavior and worse so the friend will not come back anymore. I sent him up to his room today and he punched the wall. This is the first time he has ever shown any anger. Usually he just smurks or laughs at us when corrected. He argues with everyone starting with the bus driver in the morning, all his teachers and then me when he gets home. He has always been non-compliant but this seems likes its more frequently. Could it be hormones? He will be 14 in August. Any suggestions?
