My 8 year old son is having major behavior issues. I feel like I have done something wrong to make him this way! He fights with everyone in the family, is very selfish, will not go to bed at night, and I feel like everything ends up in a struggle with him. I don't know what to do! I love him! He is my child! This hurts me sooo bad!
Thanks for any support out there!

This must be really hard for you right now & I'm sorry that you are in such pain right now. I would try taking a day out with your son where you can spend some time alone with him. Maybe if you & him took a late afternoon walk where you could talk to him would help. Let him know that he can come & talk to you about anything & "promise" him that you will do your best to listen & understand without overreacting to whatever he may have to say. Reassure your love for him & just let him see that your sincere with your way of communitcating with him. Don't pressure him to talk & let him try to open up on his own. It may take awhile but maybe he will after watching your actions of sincerity & trust. It could be something important to him so take everything he says be just as important to you too. I wish you the best with your son!
