since me and his dad split 5 years ago it seems like its been a competition to be the good .week.. he wont do anything i tell him barely he back talks me like crazy. I finally put my foot down a gave a crap less weather i was the good parent or not and started correcting him by sending him to his room trying to ground him but no matter what i do he laughs in my face... i took his games and tv away and im lost... im so freaking stressed out im crying his little brother is picking up on what hes doing.. and hes being so disrespectful i just want to scream... sorry this is more of a vent but i dont know what to do now since i let him go so long.. who knew 8 year olds could be such monsters!! i definetly learned to correct the little one as he gets older to avoid this behavior

tear his ass up with a belt. that will teach him to show you some respect.~ TiffanieK
Are you serious? that won't teach respect- it will teach fear *shakes head
... also will teach that violence is the only way to deal with problems, humiliation is part of love & relationships... I could go on for hours about how this will NOT help a bit!!

Start by taking EVERYTHING out of his room that is not a bed, a desk and school supplies... and lock it all up!! Then, when you send him to his room he will get the hint. VirginiaMama is on the right track with the rest!! hang in there!!
