Trying to get advice on how to help my son understand that his attitude is not right. He firmly believes that if its not how he thinks it should be then its not right. Have alot of arguments over "stupid" people. Hes been getting into trouble at school over is attitude and mouth. He has no problem voicing his opinion on what he thinks. He can't or won't grasp the concept that life doesn't always go the way you think it should. Does anybody have any advice??View Thread
he is on Lamotrigine, which I know that is the generic name. He has been on this med for 2 years. I know that I have to change some of the ways I talk to him to get him to understand, things I didn't have to do with his 4 older sisters. I also know that part of the problem we have at home is his step-father doesn't understand, and trying to get him to understand is also part of the problem. He grew up with if they don't listen or do what they are suppose to do thats their problem. He's not a dumb kid, so he should know better. Those are his famous last words. Its what we hear all the time. THey get along great when my son is in a good mood. But things always get worse on his bad days, I believe worse than what they would have to be.View Thread
