I have a 9 yr old son. He's constantly doing everything he possibly can to annoy people. He hits his older siblings and laughs about it. He's been diagnosed with adhd and ptsd. He always has to have attention, mainly mine. He destroys things, hits his siblings, calls them names knowing it will hurt their feelings and get a reaction out of them. He blames everyone else for his actions but when someone does something to him, he acts like the world is going to come to an end. I feel like he manipulates me. He says hurtful things when he's not getting his way like I don't love him, I wish he was dead or I love his siblings more or I don't care about him. I've never said anything like that to him. I've tried taking things from him, time out, spanking, talking to him, nothing works. I had him on medicine for adhd but chose to take him off of them due to the side effects. I tried different ones but to no avail. I really feel like I've control and I don't know what to do. I'm exhausted and mentally drained.
