When my son is in school, its a nightmare. All hes worried about is socializing with other misbehaving kids, talks back to the teachers, doesnt do his homework/classwork, lies about everything. Even when confronted. Ive taken away tv, games, outtings, phone, music. But I have lost it and spanked him but still he remains the same. He was an honor roll student all these years and this school year has started so bad. I've tried asking him questions to figure things out but he just stares at me with no answer. Then at times writes me letters to make me feel guilty saying he doesnt deserve a mom like me, like im so wonderful and so on and promises to do better but doesnt. Im at my limit I cant handle him anymore! Its always something new everyday now.

Next time he writes you a letter do not open it and take it to him. Tell him that you love him even though he has done things you do not like. Tell him that it hurts you deeply that he does not love you enough to know how much he is hurting you by saying and doing the things he does, Tell him that he needs to rewrite the letter to explain why he feels the way he does, why he did the things he did, why he says the things he said. Then to write if he would have done things differently in a kinder manner how would things have been different, Tell him if he is doing things due to being threatened or hurt by anyone that he needs to write that down as well and that you will do whatever it takes to insure that it will be resolved in a safe manner so that no one gets hurt. Tell him that you will be there for him no matter what happens. Tell him again that you love him and you wait for the revision of his letter with a loving heart. PRAY TO GOD. Start also watching Joyce Meyers she was a real help to me. May God bless you and your family according to His will for your life. MY BIGGEST QUESTION FOR YOU TO CONSIDER IS THAT HE HAS BECOME THE WAY HE HAS DUE TO BEING BULLIED OR THREATENED OR HURT BY ANOTHER. IF HE HAS THEN HE IS ACTING OUT DUE TO FEAR AND SELF PRESERVATION. BAD BULLYING USUALLY STARTS ABOUT THE AGE OF 9-10 AS OF LATE.
