Has this happened over the weekend? Is the 8 year old always a pain? Who else is around to help you? What do you think you need to do? My brother was a nightmare but no two people are the same so need more info.

He has been like this for a while. He had been at his grandparents for the weekend - was fine there - and it makes no odds whether he goes or not, most days he is challenging.

He is an angel at school.

Dh and I just don't know what to do.

Just feel sad that he is like this especially as he wanted loads of siblings!

If he is okay at grandparent and okay at school! What do you think changes at home? Does he think you are too tough or too soft! Could you stay with grandparents & see what the differences are? Could you spend a day at school? Speak to grandparents & school?
Do you think he wants more of your attention & is now jealous of siblings?

When he was younger he was rude to me in front of the HV and she said I had a very secure little boy.

I think that he thinks I am too hard but I know he haven't been consistant and at times may then go too far.

His GPs give him 100% attention and are just so much better with the kids than me. He has never been any trouble at school as far as I know and I have asked.

Attention could be an issue but with 3 kids and a rubbish mum it is hard to do.

"His GPs give him 100% attention"

There is the problem. One to one he is fine but things get tough when he has to share attention?

I told him this morning if he wanted attention to come and tell me.

|He has to share his GPs with his siblings so it isn't all about that.

I think you should try and stick to a routine I find this helps me with my Bad mummy phases. I'm the eldest of 4 kids and I was told to put the others to bed as well as other chores, which I hated. I find a routine during those difficult times of the day keep my temper at bay. It also stops Ds thinking that there is anything else going on. hope it helps
