My 11-year-old has always been a very demanding and challenging child and he has pushed his boundaries all his life
But lately , the past 6 months or so , things have really stepped up for the worse !
He has always had problems with his older brother ( 14 years old ) , who has been teasing him and " torturing " him , since he was born ,
I have tried all different approaches , sending him to his room , withholding pocket money , forbidding computer use , you name it , but he just won´t stop .
And I think , my younger son is simply fed up with it ( which I can´t say , I blame him ) , but apart from getting physically violent with each other , which I don´t allow and break up as soon as it happens , he calls him names , that are unbelievable , some I´ve never even heard of before .
I won´t go into detail here , but they are the kind of stuff , one would expect in some slum , probably not even there !
How do I get him to stop , I´ve tried talking to him calmly when it was just him and I , punishing him , ...anything I could think of !
I´m really at my wits end , and I cannot take this kind of language anymore , especially since I have 3 younger kids , that I do not want to start picking up this kind of language .
