Finding it hard to be patient after investing so much time& effort with little result. My biological 3yo is starting to mock negative behaviors he's learning from him. The child is 9yo, has encoparesis (that I had diagnosed, not his mom) and has lived with her since he was 4. He didn't know who she was. She has been dx with borderline personality disorder, & I am starting to think he may have it as well. If he doesn't, he's certainly learned the behavior to a T. He consumes everyone's constant attention, to the point that the oldest (11yo step) is feeling very isolated. Anyone have advice from similar experience?

So what therapies/counseling is this child receiving? That needs to be a first step. If mom has personality disorders to the extent that he had disassociated her as his parent, the boy needs help.

Get him and his biological sibs into counseling, and see what recommendations they have.
