  • He may have ODD. Talk to your doctor. Counseling and that sort of thing can help.

  • Maybe try getting him into a sport that will channel his energies, keep him occupied, and teach him discipline? I know that martial arts a lot of times will teach them to never use their skills to be offensive, merely defensive, and I know that they def. instill a sense of discipline in them and it's physically taxing... hope that helps!

  • Getting my son into swimming, and have a super consistent schedule, has helped his behavior a lot. He's 13, and has had difficult times... However, the consistent sameness every day has helped him. Also, finding an activity he's good at (like momof2redhedz suggested) helped build his confidence and allowed him to blow off steam. You may also consider some form of counseling... I know that my son struggles with self esteem and feelings of failure, which make him defensive... They resist talking about it, but talking helps a lot. Good luck, and hang in there!!

  • Counsling, speak to the doctor....

    Bullying is dangerous and he could hurt someone and get himself into trouble. That needs to be fixed right away...

    His behaivor sounds like a confidence issue, definitly seek help from the doctor and therapist....

    Good luck
