I feel so nasty..

I have three children ages 9, 6 and 21 mos. my 9 yr old is a pain in the ass!, but my problem is my 6 yr old son. he is so bad, I have already pretty much snapped on him, but caught myself. he tells me to go "fuck myself", "asshole". This little boy has everything he could ever want and goes everywhere he wants. We treat him so good but yet he conutines to be a ASSHOLE to me!. I am at my snapping point. I have been putting my hands on him to hurt him. tonight I told my oldest son that I was going to send him to a foster home (of course I didn't mean it!!!). my older son started hitting me and crying like heck!. I don't know what to do, I don't want to hit my children but I just snap any suggestions?. Tonight my son said he is going to tell his teacher and send me to jail

  • 123 Magic. This book is TRULY amazing! My 3 year old has started trying to get an attitude with me. So I read this book about 2 weeks ago, and now things are better than ever.

    BUT it sounds like MOST of the problem lies with you, not the child. A truly believe a therapist would be worth your time and money. Good luck!

  • Maybe they are better off in foster care. You have lost all control and have already been bestest by a 6 year old.

  • ((OP HERE)) .. his teacher's husband is a cop. I don't want to be like this and I am only towards him. some say it is middle child syndrome. but I feel so bad, I really need to stop this..

    ...a few weeks ago, i snapped and for the first time ever my husband came after me and hit me, asking me how I like it!. I need to stop this..but I am afraid to tell anyone cause I don't want to lose my kids.

  • He calls you an asshole because you call him one. Children learn by example. No wonder why they act like that-because YOU can't control yourself.

  • WOWWW Don't do foster care. Just bite your tongue next time, because to a kid this could actually mean you are going to really put them there. I know you were mad we all have those days. Just learn from it and find something discipline wise that would work. Take a toy, time-out.. grounding. But, the trick is you have to mean business. GL, hugs......!

  • Sounds like a lot of violence going on. You need to get control of yourself or get out of the house.

  • SaraP, there you go again. Shush! She didn't SAY she calls him an ASSHOLE. She was informing us that is how he ACTS.
