hi to all - im new to this website, so sorry if I don't do it right!! I am at my wits end with my once lovely 11 year old - he swears at me, a new addition to his behaviour and has hit me - I always said to myself, that if he did ever do that I would tell my husband, but to be honest I hate the idea of what he might do. The son is always so repentant after a "bout" of bad behaviour but its just not good enough anymore - I end up frustrated and just want to hit him - I end up crying which then upsets my other son (8) and the whole thing escalates -what oh what do I do - I am truly miserable about the whole thing - is this puberty/ we used to be so close and he was always so loving towards me HELP please

What do you mean by you hate the idea if what your husband would do if you told him?

Hmmmm, I'm no expert but that might just be your problem right there.

I think it is a challenging age, in all honesty at the moment my once lovely dd is being a little horror, she doesn't swear but we have total attitude and attention seeking.

However neither of you should live in fear of what his dad might do if you need him to back up your ds behaviour.
