Being a mother of 4 comes with it's own set of challenges but my 9 year old is giving me a RUN for my money. This year has been especially difficult with him, he ws put on a medication that did not match well with his system and ended up spending 9 days in pschy care facility. Since comming hime it has been nothing but one battle after another. The worst of it is reflected at me and on almost a daily basis we spend often several hours on a battle of "who's the boss". Yesterday the battle started when I asked him to reveiw his spelling words with him, 2 hours later and seveal mini battles my husband came home and was to bring him down. As my family keeps telling me the problme is he is no longer afraid of me, obviosly beating him isn't the answer so what do I do so my husband doesn't always have to come to the rescue??????
