hi...my son has aspergers/adhd..he's always been a handful but lately I feel like im constantly banging against a brick wall..his 17...6ft and he's always had behavioural issues and social probs and struggles even still with encropresis,complains of occasional stomach upset,had reflux as a nanny..my son is very lazy...he just wants to sit on ps3 all day...penis PC.He attends a off school campus and that wasn't so bad,but now he doesn't want to return to school or tafe..he is on a disability pension,he reckons school stuff is too easy is too simple but his tree teacherche said he isn't completing work properly as he is a man of few words liked to hurry things etc and hates writing etc...im disappointed he doesn't want tocontinue school and tafe,but more so that if he does..he will be doing nothing.He is slack also on hygeine and gets angry at my so called nagging...he's defiant against house rules,has heaps of excuses etc...won't exercise,eats like a horse and doesn't care that he's getting bigger..he eats and drinks in his room which is a no no,as we rent and leaves rubbish in his room..if I take away his privelliges like his ps3 or PC he cracks it..he will be nasty to his younger siblings and then talks about how others ought to respect him,but he shows none.He swears alot and has even thrown stuff,attacked siblings and me...I don't know what to do...his lost,im lost for whattodo he was on medication,ritalin until he hot puberty but took him off it because didn't want to make him infertile.His teacher has reccommended a ediatric pyscho but point is..getting him there..which is sthing idont think my son would go for...really stay loss. :-(
