Anyone have any suggestions on what we can do to correct my 8 year olds attitude and backtalking to us? Almost everytime we talk to him he has to argue or back talk to us. We've taken away just about everything from video games to his cartoons. We have him in Tae Kwon Do to help with his ADHD but we have yet to see the benefit of this as he just started about 8 weeks ago. Every morning is a fight with him to get up and get dressed and ready for school. I wake him up at 6 before i get a shower, then his alarm goes off at 6:30. When i come back down around 6:35 he's still in bed. I have to yell and scream at him to get him up and dressed. We almost miss the bus every day. Any ideas what we can do?
