Hello everyone! I am new to cafe mom. My mother was a member and she said it really helped her and thought the site could help me. This is my situation, I have 3 children 13, 11 and 7. For the most part my girls which are the two older ones are pretty good just a few minor issues but my son who is 7 is giving me a run for my money. I am so tired I don't know what else to do. He is acting out in school he just got suspended yesterday for stealing off the teacher's desk even though the item he took was his. I explained to him that even though it was his when she took it and put on her desk that it was on her property and that he can't take anything off her desk without her position. He is also very angry but he won't tell me why. Whenever I ask him to do something he always gets an attitude and back talks. He has been showing me no respect lately and he just acting out maybe a year ago. Before then he was fine. I have put him into counseling through the school which didn't work but now he is at another school and I enrolled him into their counseling program where he is talking to the man but at home its a whole other story. He lies all the time, he stays into it constantly with his sisters and I just don't know what to do anymore. I am so tired. I have tried everything, talking, punishment, taking his toys and books away, whooping everything and nothing seems to be working. If anybody has any advice for me please feel free to give it whether it is positive or negative. I really appreciate it.
