This is my delemma...I am fostering my 14 year old male cousin. I have a 13 year old daughter and a 13 year old step son as well as a 10 month old son in our home. My cousin has been living with us for nearly 2 years now and still on a regular basis, he and my daughter argue constantly. He constantly throws dirty looks, talks under his breath, and doesnt like to share unless he gets something out of it, like money. We have lectured and talked and grounded and I am just exhausted as to what we should try next. Got any ideas?Answer Question

If worse comes to worse, (and I mean worse) you could consider applying him to the Cal Farley's Boys Ranch.
It's a good program. It's free to you and they receive applications from all over the US. Whatever you do, never never never, abandon him. Be there for him emotionally always!
