I know my 2 bio's live with me full time, just started seeing their dad not that long ago. I m not sure why my 9yr old DS is calling me "megan!" Im shocked right now. He got intothis argument with me and yelled at me, I know my son is ADHD, but his temper is just out of control. Im not sure on what to do , or who to talk to about this (other than MD) his rages are out -of-control. Did BD program him to say this? Why would he hurt my feelings??

I have a 6 yr old DS with ADHD and he calls me by my first name sometimes and says things that hurt my feelings. His temper isn't too bad yet, but what I do is never let him see it hurt me. I will say things like "Why do you call me that?" Or that isn't nice, but usually I just take his privileges away. I have noticed when I tell him that it hurts my feelings it sometimes makes him want to do it more. Maybe you could try to talk to him about how it hurts you beings he is 9?
