I don't know what else to do. At the end of this last school year I was really starting to see signs of disrespect at the end of the year. I told my son by the end of summer things were going to change. Wrong! They have gotten worse.
My husband is the good cop and I am the bad cop. He is home with me and then Daddy gets home and they are buds. Drives me crazy!!
We have taken his Wii away, DSI, his bike, computer, TV. He is upset for a few minutes and then he gets over it and it is like it doesn't even matter. I can't handle the disrespect, NOT listening and just plain laziness and rudeness from my kid. I swear I did not raise him like this. Don't get me wrong, I love my son very much but things have got to change. Please send any advise my way!!
