I have a 11 year old son who is totally disrespectful to me which is causing friction between my husband and I. He will be attending secondary school in a couple of weeks and I am worried he will fall with the wrong crowd, he also thinks he can say or do what he wants and when I/we say "no" its like WW3 in our house, he stomps about and raises his voice and quite ofter swears quite badly at us. He gets so angry when I say he cant do what he wants and feel like I should let him do it so it "keeps the peace". Its seriously getting me down and dont know how to control him. I just need him to understand that we are looking out for him and not to punish him. I just wish I could sit him down and talk to him but not sure how to do it, please help.
