  • Xanax!! For me, I am not kidding. It really helps on those really stressful days. (I get anxiety attacks when I am PMSing). Anyway, I send my 13 yr old to his room, I ignore his attitude until he talks to me nicely. I go for a ride, I go for a walk. I send him to his grandparents, I send him to his stepdad's (my exbf that really isn't his dad). I take a long, hot shower.

  • I have a 12 year old smartass (who I love very much) but he can make me want to run screamin my head off!! I usually just tfy to pick my battles now. Is it worth the effort ...take last night I had to force him to take a shower! I have him@ seeing a therapist tto deal with other problems(add) and it does help that I can talk to him too. I ask him to do his chores and its like he thinks I'm trying to kill him but I let him vent ignoring his comments as long as he ends up doing it. I also have it set where things are earned like time on the computer, its a little rough to start but once they know the drill,its great just stick to your guns. I hope this helps and if you have any advice for me on how to get him to bathe without a battle I would love it lol;)
