My son is in 2nd grade... We have been struggllng with him since pre-school. In pre-k we had a problem with him bullying, and over the past few years that has gone.. he is no longer violent with other kids, but he now is completely insubordinate. Says he doesnt do certain things in school simply because he doesnt want to. He was recently diagnosed with ADHD.. meds have calmed him down, but i cant get him to kick the stubbornness. I've tried EVERYTHING! Time out, taking things away(to the point where he has NOTHING), strenous physical activity(jogging in place for 10 mins),i've given him every lecture in the book, I've even resorted to spanking and bribery... nothing is helping and i absolutely have no clue what to do. He is a very sweet kid, has a good heart. so i dont know what is going on. He has a younger sibling that is in pre-k...and the two of them are like night and day... i dont know where i went wrong, or how to fix this. Any and all advice would be tremendously appreciated.
