I am currently on leave and have seen my kids in a whole new light. My son concerns me. He has always been emotional but it's gotten worse. He can never lose, he's never wrong, everything is "why", and I have to repeat myself endlessly. I have to stay on him about eating, doing homework, and just about anything. Friends are telling it's ADD/ADHD. Others are telling me he just needs a good spanking. I've tried everything.
I spoke to his guidance counselor and gave her a heads-up on the issues with his talking in class and not following directions. I want to help my son but it seems no matter what I try, something frustrates him and he is so easily discouraged. It's heartbreaking hearing "I can't do it, mommy" when I know he can.
Sorry for babbling, but I'm so frustrated and confused. I appreciate all the help you all give. Thank you ahead of time.
