My 12 yr old son is out of control, I don't know what to do he threatens to hit my husband when he doesn't like what we tell him to do. He is in orchestra and he has to get up at 7 he doesn't want to be in orchestra anymore,but he wants to be in band when he enters 7th grade. I told him if he wants to do that then he has to complete orchestra he is still fighting us on it and he gives us a very bad attitude in the morning. I'm tired of the fighting and the stress and bad feelings that are in this home all the time. He is going to be grounded when he gets home from school today and I might ground him longer till his behavior changes. Or do you ladies have a better suggestion maybe something that worked for your kids?Answer Question

I don't ever threaten anything I won't actually follow through with. Have him decide if it is worth quitting orchestra, but then stick with your decision about him not joining band. Let him make the decision that way he is responsible for what happens. Good luck!!
