My 13 year old has such a flip mouth and flips out on his dad and I when he gets irritated or if we didn't hear something he says he will scream at us. But 15imites later he will say he is sorry. This is everyday. How do I get him to see how disrespectful to us? HELP

And have you tried to tell him this? What have you done to get your point across? I never let my son do this to me and he is older than yours. When he gets upset about something and I hear the anger in his tone I remind him that he has things he can loose just as quick. He tones it down. I have not had to do this too many times because he was taught from very young that was not appropriate. If he yells at you about something give him back the same thing a time or two and see how he reacts. If he says not to do that, then tell him that is what he sounds like to you and you do not want to hear it either. I would also start taking priviledges away when he flips out about something that has to do with what he is talking about. He is mad because he wants to go to a friends house right this minute and you said later....do not let him go. If he keeps this up give him other consequences to deal with. Do not give in to his back talk.

Saying sorry means you won't do it again. Give him chores sounds like he's got a lot of energy that needs to be used up. Dhave him dig a hole and cover it back up. Repeat.....he'd be tilling the dirt in the backyard then maybe u could plant a garden. LMAO
