My 14 year old son has ADHD, ODD, and Intermittent Explosive Disorder. I can handle most of it, but since he was about 12, he has been telling me everything. Even if it would get him in trouble! For the most part, I appreciate his openness with me, and saying that, I have learned to react somewhat calmly when the things he tells me are stressful to me. He has been sneaking out at night ovccassionally but then calling me an hour later to tell me he snuck out...then not answer for the rest of the night. Then he started telling me about sexual things he has done with girls. He is still a virgin (because he would tell e if he wasn't!) and I have expressed to him that when he tells me every detail about every aspect of his life, it stresses me out to the point where I'm having anxiety attacks and can't concentrate. He has been in counseling focusing on boundaries, but there has been no change. I'm worried about my physical health because of all the stress i'm being put through with this. (I am a single mother with a 12 year old son as well) The more I make it apparent to him that the extent of his openness is taking a serious toll on me ( physically and mentally) the more he does it. Help??
