Sounds like some tough love is needed. Start taking things away, talk to him and see if you cant find where the anger is coming from. Get him involved in an out of school activity if hes not already in one. Most kids that act out have a reason, often its to get attention even if its negative. If you need seek outside help like a counselor, talk to the school they may have a program.

I am going through the same thing with my 7 year old girl. Phone calls from school constantly. Her attitude is horrible. But the only thing that I've noticed that is making it better is sticking to what i say. I always gave into her being a single mom for most her life. And I am not giving in anymore. When I say no I mean no and she's finally starting to get it. She's not happy about it but oh well. I've also use her favorite activity Cheer as a way to reward her good behavior. She gets daily progress reports and if she has a bad week she doesn't go. Good luck!!!
