My 10 year old son has been acting out for a few years now, progressively getting worse. My husband and I have went through every excuse in the book and finally came to the realization that even if it *is a phase* we can't make it through another day without some support.
Today the principal called and my son hurt another child, at first in defense supposedly, but the second time just to hurt him, and I was embarrassed, shocked, appalled and disappointed...in myself as a parent. Because apparently I haven't been doing my son right by allowing this behavior in the first place.
Looking forward to some resolve and peace at home.
My Out-of-Control Child
