I’m at the end of my tether and could use some help.
My sons behaviour is driving me up the wall and the stress of it is making me physically ill. I ask him to do some chores around the house, they don’t get done, I ask him not to eat all the chocolates and crisps, some of the chocolates having been bought for me.
I have tried taking xbox away, ipad, sending him to his room hiding the sweet stuff but he will just rummage around until he finds them.
I’m stressed to the point it’s set one of my health conditions off and am seriously considering social services as I can’t cope any more, I have no support from family or from his dad, he’s never met him.
Oh my. Sounds very challenging.It’s really difficult now for all us parents and really for the kids as well as so many of us are fed up and burnt out with the extra burdens we’ve had to bear in 2020 for far too long.How old is your son,and has he got any complicated behavioural issues? Can you get any time to yourself? Is he usually at school/can you get his teachers on board to work with you? Can you perhaps just lock the sweet stuff away? If you are happy to provide more details there’s probably a lot of people here who can empathize with you and offer some advice.It’s so hard doing it alone when it feels like your own child is working against you,I know what that’s like with no family support etc,so please know you’re not alone for a start!
