10yr old adhd son violent,uncontrollable, normal avenues failing
Please read abt our family to get a clear picture of the problem. Got kids back from mother this summer (who ran off.with them and was bad enough. She isn’t. Allowed any communication with them or allowed to be alone w.kids for 15yrs. ) despiite professional help, 5mg ritalin AM, consistancy, love and our best efforts, our 9yr old son is increasingly violent, angry, uncooperarive to the max, and threatens serious bbodily harm as well as name calling, swearing, and flipping over every tiny thing. Evenings are usually loaded with these behaviours and make home life stressful and loud. Its placing stress on his 8yr old sister as well as his dad and I, and we are increasingly worried. Its affecting all aspects of his and our lives. Does anyone have any behaviour modification tips? We are getting him help for underlying problems as well as the ADHD and possible ODD, but need help to decrease these behaviours asap. We need help to help him. Advice?
