I have a 6 year old step son who hits me and himself, he breaks everything, he refuses to do anything that is asked of him or anything he is required to do, actually right now at this time he has a black eye, and rug burn from doing these things. Again teachers have zero problems and other care givers also do not have any problems. I have a total of 4 children and he scares my other 3. He screams for long periods of time, I have tried multiple forms of discipline such as spanking, time outs, added chores, writing the I will not do it again, talking to him, taking things away, grounding him to his room, and the latest is the 1-2-3 Magic, and that also does not work. He has even gone as far as cutting off his 6 yr old sisters hair while she was asleep. I am scared for myself, and my other children, as well as for him. What is to become of him as an adult if he does not learn now? Also I have had him tested for ADHD, and Autism, they say he has nothing. Do you have any suggestions???
