I have a 10 year old stepson who is constantly sniffling as loud as possible when he is not getting attention. He is rude and always acts like he is 5 years old. He wont blow his nose unless we stand there and wait. Anytime we talk about other kids or other people he starts making noises or cuts us off and redirect us to him, even when he isn't in the room. His bio mother took him to a pysch when we were deployed and said he has adhd and is depressed. She constantly gives him pills for ANYthing. Example, When we have him he doesn't take sleeping pills but with her he does. She calls us yellimg sayhe is having a breakdown and the ss is on speaker calm. She is an issue we know but what can we do? He focuses on what he wants, and hacks into computers, sneaks around, and play video games . When he disrespects adults his excuse is adhd. Other kids with adhd dont act as sneaky as he does. I hate it. Its embarrasing bc hubby and I are so caring and ppl cant believe he is our kid. I'm pregnant now and his stuff undet his breathe about my new baby is going to be the devil. I want to punch his face. His mother plays the victim role bc she is mad he is remarried and we are having a baby and then his son does it. Whatever the doc thinks is going on our ss will come home and start acting even worse. Whatever he hears he starts to do. He is obsessed with any medical diagnosis. We do everythimg with him. He refuses to play with kids his age out side. He will throw a fit like he is crazy. Please tell me I'm not alone.
