My 9 year old son never listens to anything I say. We have spoken with guidance counsellors and he is so manipulative that he wraps them around his little finger and behaves perfectly. He does the same with anyone else. His father is no help at all, only saying that it will get worse and that he was the same at this age. I have withdrawn tv, computer, treats, even tried a reward chart all to no avail. It’s doing my head in. Even the simplest task he won’t do for me. For the second time in 2 months I walked out of the house today because he continually wouldn’t do what was asked and did the complete opposite. Suggestions please, hubby won’t even go to a counsellor about it. Even his teacher saw it, so it’s not just me. HELP already suffering depression he makes it sooooo much more than I can bear. Is the only solution for me to walk?
