I have the care of a 12 year old who is consistently malicious, nasty and violent toward myself and his younger brother. I have done nothing to make this child hate me, yet he does. His own father can no longer control him and is considering sending him away for our safety and sanity. Can anyone out there help?Answer Question

You sound frustrated (with good reason) and definately may need more help that what we could tell you in any post. There are some great books on discipline and teenage parenting which may help http://www.cjkidz.com/parentsgrandparentsteachers.html Click on Teenagers Raising and Understanding.
I do believe kids need love the most when they are acting unlovable.
