He argues with me, debates with me, is constantly complaining... moans about lunch, gripes about dinner, fights with his little brother. I am at my wits end with this child and don't know what to do anymore. The only time he is happy is when he's participating in some kind of activity or he's outside. When we're stuck in the house (like we will be this coming winter) he is rotten. He's too big for spankings, doesn't have a video game system or computer to take away. Barely watches tv as it is and having him write lines or essays has no effect on his behavior either. Is this typical 9 year old? What else can I try?
