I'm glad i found this place. My son is 11 and i feel totally overwhelmed. He has been expelled multiple schools. I can't hold a job due to his behavior because no friends/relatives can handle him. He's sooo angry I have no idea how to help him. I'm a recovering addict (been sober 4 years) and I know my past using was tramatic for him. Feel horrible and have tons of regrets but today is today and I'm commited to helping him so he can have a good future but I just feel so helpless. I try and talk with him and figure out his feelings and he never lets me in. Just gets mad and says everything is BS. In the process of attending a new school and if this one doesn't work out I have no idea what are options are. He's very smart but behind in grades due to all his behaviorial issues. Everyone tells me that all he needs is consistancy and disipline and that a child is a reflection of a parent. But have tried all the strategies the doctors have recomended... and taking a weekly parenting class. Sometimes afraid to confront him because it will just mean a huge blowout that will go on and on. Single mom for the most part. His father is in his life but only sporadically and when it suits him. Like I said I feel so lost. Thanks for listening and glad I found a place where people might understand.
