I need some advise please!!!! My 8 year old is a wonderful boy. He is an excellent student, and is very well behaved in school. However, as soon as he gets home from school, he seems to be a different child. He has a 2 year old brother. When his brother was first born, I didn't see any issues with him being jealous. Now he is misbehaving at home, he talks back to me, he makes very smart remarks, he isn't listening, and I even caught him using bad language. His father and I do not use bad words at home, sometimes "darn" has escaped my lips accidentally, but I immediately apologize. My biggest mistake is that I yell a lot. What can I do to make things right and help my son?
