Have a defiant 13yr. old who won't complete chores because he is already in trouble and on restriction. He is frequently disrespectful and cusses at me when angry. He was worse before his six month stay at a behavioral center three months ago. I just need to know how to handle him better so he doesn't escalate his behavior and become abusive again.
