My name is Jenn and I found this group and I thought I would give it a try. I am at my whitts end with my 13 yr old son. He has only been with me for a little over 2 years He lies and steals like it is a part of every day life. He has no respect for other adults or otherwise. He can talk his way out of anyhitng. he even talked the police from taking him to the hospital and can do the same to his counselors I have taken him to. I have been to countless people and called them and no one seems to want to help, put hin in counseling they say. He made a spear out of a steak knife and a piece of wood. He has been a danger to his younfer brothers. He had 3 knoves at school, one on the bus, one hideen in his coat linning an da butter knofe in his locker. He has an IEP at school and even with that he is failing every grade. He has been diagnosed with ADHD and the last trip to get him evaluated the Dr, said he had opposistional defiance disorder. I have done every thing from grounding him to giving him things back. He seems like he has no consequences of his action adn like he does not think before he does it. I am looking at alternative schools but no help there either. He is to get evaluated later in the summer so I am crossing my fingers they will find something else. He also intentionally burned himself with a ciggerate lighter when I got his brother from days care. There is other stuff to. This is hard on our family and me and him I am sure. I want to help him and I am not sure how.
