My son is 4... god bless him he is my angel but he is getting harder and harder to raise. His father and I are not together and have not been since he was 6 weeks old... I am now married and have a family, and his father has a family and has been with the same person for over 3 years.
I get the idea that he is kind of left out when it comes to their family, and he tried to tell me this. his dad says horrible things about me and about my son in front of him... My son does not listen, talks back, gets horrible mean attitude to the point it SCARES me, he is rough with my son (16months) and step daughter (4)... There is just so much!!! I have tried so many ways to discipline him, and it seems like nothing works with him... I think one minute his dad and I are on the same page then the next minute his father is calling me flipping out and bringing my son into it... I sit and try to teach him things so he is ready for kindergarten... but he will NOT sit there and have anything to do with it... I am really thinking ADHD, but there is so much more to it and let me tell you I am at a TOTAL loss. I am a good parent, yes I make mistakes, but I really cannot figure out how to help him. He RUNS me house and my mood...
