I am at the end of my rope. My ds1 is 10 and 80% of the time is a joy to be around ...the other 20% is hell. He is rude, disrespectful, very hurtful to all around him, yells, spits, cannot keep his mouth shut and will not stay in his room. I have asked him to go to his room to give us some breathing room so things don't escalate, a time-out type thing. I can't leave as i have 3 other kids. I don't think it's fair to the other kids to listen to him spew such hateful words to anyone in his path. I don't even know where to start as nothing seems to matter to him. Tonight I collected all his keys (he has a massive key collection and it is much loved) and told him he would have to earn them back. He then proceded to spit (I cannot believe I have a child who would do this) at his Dad. WTH. How did this happen. We have always tried to parent respectfully, not spank, listen, etc. This is our return? My husband wants to spank. I know that is not the answer (and so does he) but I am not sure what the answer is. This kid is hard. He has always been hard but things have been so much easier than when he was a baby/toddler. Things have gotten bad within the last 6 months. The lack of respect has me floored and my dh REALLY upset. Please help.
**He is a model child at school. The entire school raves about what an amazing, sweet, trustworth, respectful kid he is. I feel cheated that we don't get that same kid at home.
