difficult child 2 is incredibly annoying and provocative these days since we're tweaking medications. He absolutely infuriates easy child (and even difficult child 1) and she is becoming a shrieking, verbally abusive and threatening little witch because of the level of her frustration -- she verbalizes why she's so harsh around him very well and seems justified, but I can't condone her behavior one bit and I tell her as much. I'm starting to worry about her anger issues with respect to him and hoping it doesn't spill over into her other relationships. difficult child 2 seems to delight in bothering his sibs and whether I'm driving in the car or in the house, I have to separate him from the others or all heck breaks loose. And even when they are separated, he still manages to find a way to bug someone. How do you all deal with disciplining kids who are out of control like this? Time outs fail because he goes right back to it not long after he's out of time-out (as evidenced by the 1/2 dozen or so he had on the 4th). Revocation of privileges fail because he continues with the offensive behavior after he's done complaining about how unfair I am. Physical punishment fails because it only works for as long as his memory of it (very short) and it's just not right. Do I need to just sit on him all day? Send the others away? I am so sick of playing referee and listening to everyone else cry foul (even husband, now)! Tomorrow is our 2nd opinion psychiatrist appointment., but that's not going to fix everything in an instant. I really need some advice on how to manage the rest of this summer without losing my mind or any more hair.
