My husband and I are struggling to figure out how to discipline our 9 almost 10 year old. He is a very gifted, bright child. He has always done well in school, and gets awards at school for excellent behavior and is the top student in his class. However, at home he is a different child. He is disrespectful and crude. He uses potty language constantly saying words like penis, butt hole, poop, etc. He’s constantly making crude jokes and gestures even though we’ve told him multiple times that this is inappropriate behavior. We’ve taken things away from him, and yet he continues. He’s also started using the word “freaking”. He decided that he would call me by my first and middle name with “freaking “ in the middle of it instead of Mom. For example he will refer to me as First Name Freaking Middle Name. My husband , my mom, and countless others have told him how disrespectful and rude this is. Yet, he doesn’t stop. We take his phone away or electronics, yet as soon as he gets them back, the potty mouth and disrespectful attitude is back. At night, he will feel guilty and tell us he is sorry for using the foul language and calling me the disrespectful name. However, when we pick him up at the end of the day, he is right back at it. He also continuously tells his 4 year old brother that he is stupid and he should go kill himself. I don’t know what to do. I am at my wits end with this child. It’s hard to get people to believe us that he is this way because he puts on a totally different persona at school. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!!!
