My son says awful hurtful things I have tried all kinds of punishment I have taken his stuff away grounded him nothing works I am at the end of my rope he has a good heart but gets so angry and hatful over the smallest thing I am even at the point where I don't go anywhere because of his attitude and how he talks to me or others when he gets to know them well enough what do u do when they get to the point they just don't care

Maybe you should not punish him for it. I'm not saying just forget about it but try talking to him and let him know how you feel. How hurtful things make others feel. Try a system where you give him things when he behaves like a good kid. Give him more attention when he does good instead of bad. I hope this helps. Mine is soon to be 13..wish me luck! :-)
