We took all of that in stride and tried to believe that he was a normal child with behavior problems. We tried postive and
negative reinforcement, time-outs, grounding, taking things away and
just about everything else at one time or another. We even moved to another state to give him a new start in a new school, with new friends and in a house with his own room instead of in a tiny apartment but things just got worse and worse.
Last year he was having problems in school and nearly failed.
