One of the things I deal with is my almost 11 year old being totally out of proportion in his emotions. I know a lot of it is his ADHD/OCD...and part of it is a side effect from the meds. As they wear off, he looses control. However, I am having more and more issues when he is at home in the afternoons with just my teenagers. He won't do what they say, and when they push it (why they can't understand NOT to push it..that HE will be the one in trouble when I get home if he doesn't do something I told him to is a whole 'nother issue!), he gets MAD. Today it was over picking up his shoes. He DID pick them up, but instead of putting them in his room, he put them neatly in the entry way. I personally do NOT have a problem with that, but when my 15 year old DID, he went nuts...screaming, hitting the wall, etc. I am ready to lock them in a room together and see who comes out the winner, I sweat. Anyone have any suggestions?
