What are you doing to put an end to his disrespecting? You have to make him to know that the consequences for being disrespectful to you or to anyone else are going to be painful, and you have to see to it that he experiences that pain. Six is a little late to start teaching that, but it is not too late. You must get a handle on it today, because you've already seen the results of allowing him to do as he pleases. You are right in that nobody is going to want to be around him. If his own mother doesn't, how can you expect anyone else to want to? Parenting is about training, and your boy needs to be trained in the proper ways of treating others, starting with his own mother. So get yourself an instrument of discipline, and put an end to this now. The teen years will be here before you can turn around, and unless you teach him that he must respect others, your life is going to become very miserable in a few short years.
