Starting this thread on behalf of our new member @Dolly First of all, thank you for welcoming me. My son, which is not my biological son, but, he is my great nephew that I have raised since he was 11 months old just turned 16. He is very disrespectful, angry and cusses. We will be starting counseling soon. I am also working on him seeing a psychologist. I am not able to discipline him at all. He had a destructive outburst this evening, which brought me to this site. I was able to get valuable information about the umbrella of emotionally disturbed. I don't have much more to say. I guess I just needed to share my feelings with others that understand what I am going through.
