i have 5 kids. the oldest is 15 and there's an age between him & the other 4 (they are 7,4,2, and 4 months). he went to public school K-8th grade & we started homeschooling the year he started 9th grade. everything was fine. once 10th grade started, though, he turned in to a completely different kid. he started bullying the little kids, being really hateful to everyone in the house, including me. i *thought* the behavior was because he was so unhappy being at home with us all day. he was enrolled back in public school a couple of months ago. his behavior has improved, but not by much. yesterday, we were looking for the tv remote control and thought the toddler could have taken it to his room. my husband looked under the bed and in the closet. my son was in the room with him, so he knew we were in there & knew we were looking around. in the top of the closet, we found the very bottom part of a baggie filled with crushed up pills. he said they were tylenol PMs and he breaks them up because he can't take an entire pill. well, 1st, even if the story was believable (which it's not), he's not even allowed to take tylenol PM and 2nd, the story was complete BS. i'm not sure why parents think their parents are so stupid. part of the punishment is knowing that i will check his backpack every morning before school. i just got an email from his 3rd period teacher that he's skipping class. i am beyond livid. i have no idea what is going on with him and typical punishments aren't being effective. any suggestions?
