Hi, my son is 11 years old going on 12 years old soon he has a brother the age of eight and a sister the age of 16 he always fighting with his sister yelling at her screaming at her throwing things at her when he get upset for nothing because he thinks nobody is listening now I catch him hitting his brother from behind or trying to choke him and squeeze him or throw him down and hold them down. Also having issues in school and not listening to the teacher getting in trouble talking too much not doing his homework not doing what he told to do in school picking up chairs thinking he's going to hit another student when he get caught walking around in the hallway he just not participate in the way he supposed to and this is a whole big turnaround I'm a single parent I raise my kids by myself. I get no government assistance and housing they say I make too much money I can barely keep food on my plate but my kids are not hungry also I do work hard and I believe my kids work hard as well but we're in the neighborhood to wear just about him for the kids are out going to the alternative school or they fixing to be something down the road I don't want that for my son my son is better than that all the kids are better than that and I deserve better than that and I need to be pushed to know that in the more I push to do that for some reason is I turn around he's not getting it or he just want to be think being a bad but it's good if anybody know any programs so I can get him the help he needs. I feel like it's all my fault. Because I'm doing to much.

I cried reading your response yes I do have family but only one now she moved away not too far but it's just time consuming and gas wise I can't do what I want or she can't do what she wants but nevertheless I'm helping her I'm helping my mom and it's still is a little bit too much. Some family members want money 4 them helping and I just don't have to give yeah I need somebody that's going to be a mentor for my boys and stick with it not just for a couple of days and just forget about him my kids are not bad kids they're very respectful kids very respectful it's just too many promises that was made to them from mentors or food from churches or from after-school programs and I just rather not put them somewhere where they're not going to be able to give what they preach that make sense thank you for responding. Any of this sound a little crazy it's because I'm using the speaker phone the text and speak of having you call that thank you.
I tell me kids everyday tht I love them n I hold them in my arms like he's still small. lol
Even when trouble come I still tell him I love him.

Yes, I think you are doing too much and trying too hard with no help. Do you have family nearby that can help. Maybe he is trying to get your attention and what he is screaming silently is that he wants more of your love. Tell him you love him more frequently. Love is the most powerful tool believe me. It will take time to make him realize that his behavior is not the best one but with your patience and love he will change. I am not a professional but maybe that would help. Good luck.
