I am at the end of rope rope with my 9yr old son!!!
I am new to this group & I have joined because I don't know what else to do or where to turn. I have a 9yr old son that has ADHD, ODD & possibly bipolar. He is so out of control, he does not listen to me at all & he has started stealing really bad lately. I got 2 calls from his teacher because he is stealing from her, he steals stuff around the house EVERYDAY. He steals food like, milk, raw eggs, sugar, peanut butter, nutella, cheese, cereal & juice. He steals my underwear, pictures, books. He steals from the other kids & I am at a loss. This morning I woke up at 7am & peeked in his door to see if he was sleeping & he had my thongs on......WTF & he also had an old cell phone of mine & a power cord ( all these were taken from my closet ). His room is TRASHED so bad you can't see the floor. All he does is tear up paper. I have been telling him for 2 weeks to clean it & it just gets worse & worse. Someone please help me. Oh & also he has very bad sleep habits lately he sleeps for 2 hours & is up ALL NIGHT LONG.
