Earlier this year my boy stole $100 and spent it in 5 days on his way to school, my partner is his step dad and is very strict, now my 12yr old oes silly little things and gets himself in trouble with his step dad, we not sure if he does this on purpose but have run out of ideas on how to discipline him now. If anyone has ideas please I would so like some help, time out has gone from being 10 mins long to a hour long to all day long.View Thread
Thanks for your reply... We have tried this and though it is difficult as there are 5 children in our house and he is number 2, my partner went through a time of trying to give each child one on one time, now their one on one time is they go to work with him during school holidays, which none of them enjoy 'sigh'... We currently have him in therapy in the hopes it helps. we just found out today at least part of the reason he stole the money its been 5 months and the answer was peer pressure from school friends.View Thread
Hi just wondering as this is a factor of my boy (12yrs), does your boy go poos properly. If my son is even slightly constipated or hasn't even gone for a poo once during a day he will wet that night. Good luckView Thread
