I'm not participating on this forum as much as I used to, but I read it every day. I suppose I feel like I don't have much support in me, since nothing has ever worked much with my difficult child. All the medications in the world, all the therapy one can imagine, and we're not in a much better place than when he was a toddler. He's thirteen now. I DO know that some of his crazy behavior is his age, but still.....! We have lived in this house almost three years. When we moved here, we agreed for him to have the bedroom closest to the master and that worked at keeping him out of our room for about a year. Since then he's come and gone. NOW he's in our room every night, on the floor (again). IF we are adamant about getting him out, such has having a knock-down-drag-out confrontation right when we're tired and ready for sleep, then he sleeps in the living room on the floor or on the sofa. He can't tell me why, or won't. Surely he's too old to be afraid of the dark, his room is neat so it's not that he hates disarray, I just don't get it. He's also pretending to throw up now and then before school. Last week I fell for it and kept him home two days before I figured out there was not one thing wrong with him. He did it again this morning and I marched him out to the bus. We have ongoing medication checks, but have put off therapy for the last year because I thought he might need it worse when he's an older teen than now. He's terribly disrespectful (always has been), so now I take his beloved cell away from him and he was grounded to our property all weekend. Both of those hurt since he has a girfriend, but I wonder if it sunk in. Please, what could be contributing to this behavior? Any ideas?
