My 11 year old son is out of control
I'm a single mom with two kids. My son will be 12 in December and his behavior is out of control. He is already so far behind in school because he refuses to do his work. When he gets home from school he leaves and goes to the skatepark.
Today he said he wasn't at the skatepark when I was telling him he should have been home doing his homework instead at the skatepark. When I asked him where he was, he told me it was personal and refused to tell me. A few days ago he told me not to worry about him and that I didn't need to always know where he was. This is just a small part of the issues.
He is getting violent with my 15 year old daughter and actually hit me back when I spanked him the other day. He's been in therapy, didn't work. He's been on medication, made it worse. What do I do? I feel like my only option is residential therapy and it makes me sad.
