Everyday is a challenge with my son. He gets mad when I wake him for school. He doesn't clean his room. He don't like to wash up or brush his teeth. He got a negative attitude. He gets mad at everything I tell him to do. I wish he could go stay with his dad for awhile, because he's recking my nerves. I just don't know wat to do with him.

give him more options, perhaps with his room tell him he has so long to clean his room before you come through with a trash bag, if he refuses to get dressed, put his clothes in a grocery bag and send him to school in his pajamas (trust me it works, my dd was so embarrased when i say get dressed by .... she does)

how do you discipline his behavior.  That wouldn't fly at my house because i would not allow it with consequences.

I know how you feel. My son also gets on my nerves with his attitude. Hes 8 how old is your son? I keep getting that its "the age" and I agree to a point because they do test their boundaries, but the thing that I found most useful is staying consistant with what I tell him. When he takes a shower and doesnt wash he has to get back in and I stand there (with curtain closed) to make sure that he washs. As far as negitive attiude I have noticed myself with a bad attitude so I know where he is getting it from. Maybe he needs more sleep when does he go to bed? I have also thought that maybe I dont spend enough time with him so I am working on some bonding time. We have mom and son time after my daughter goes to bed.. (when is attitude allows)

How old is he? Like another person said, what are his consequences for such negative behavior?  He is most likely doing it so he has control over his situation with you.

I don't give him money sometimes. I take away his tv sometime. I don't buy him stuff

 You need to be consistent. Take away all electronics (TV, tablets, electronic toys, game systems) and make him earn __ minutes when he does good for ___ days. Don't buy him stuff all of the time. Make him earn things. He earns something, and he acts out, he loses what he earned. Make him do crappy chores when he breaks the house rules (make a list of house rules and post them in a common place; crappy chores = cleaning the toilet, tub, laundry, dishes {depending on age})

Also, ask him (when things are calm) what he feels like good house rules are. Ask him what his class rules at school are. Let him make an input. That will give him more incentive. Also, make sure to make a list of the consequences and privileges and what it takes to earn/lose them.
