I live at my parents house with my 2 kids because i am going to school and I am going through a divorce... my parents are raising my brothers son because he is a piece of shit and wont do it himself so they got custody of him.. he is 5 years old.. my son is 2 and my daughter is 1.. When I moved in with them my kids listened never pitched a fit and honestly, with a few faults, were the perfect kids.. they never back talked.. never told me no.. and did exactly what I said when i said it.. i never had to start counting to 3 until a couple months after we moved in.. my nephew on the other hand throws fits. throws things when he gets mad.. pokes out his lips and screams and yells refuses to do what he is told and back talks among other things like taking toys away from my younger kids hitting them biting them and just plain being mean.. i am trying to straighten him up because like i told my parents they are raising him as a grandbaby not their child and he needs a mother figure to be strong and firm so i have taken on that responcibility.. i just need some advice as of what to do because spanking him is just not working.. i have tried taking away toys.. etc.. help please... o and fyi: his mother did drugs the whole time she was pregnant he has ADHD and i believe that is a big part of it
Thanks any ideas would be helpful!!

There is an aspergers, autism ADHD group here on CM. I think the best if you ask your question there because they are in your shoes and they raise children with ADHD. IT is a really good group and the people are nice as well. http://www.cafemom.com/group/76 You can get loads of help and advice from those super mums:)
