In short my husband deployed I have the step-son. He has been out of hand. Arguing, yelling, not wanting anyone to tell him what to do. I have started discipline where he does things around the house to earn tv, video games etc. It seems the more we talk to him the worse he gets. He doesnt know compassion, how to be unselfish, how to care about someone besides himself, and how to talk about someone besides himself. We go to a therapist to help with the problems. But it seems things are getting worse. I feel bad but I told my hsb I cant take care of him a year w/out any help cuz it was going to take more than me to help change him. What more can I do? We are going to send him to my hsb sisters house and tell her what is going on? I'm lost I dont have kids of my own but raised my brother. How to help a child do has never learned to care about anyone but himself?Answer Question
