what in the world do you do with a child that just plain and simply doesnt care. my son is 14 and i cant even say he is selfish because that would imply caring about himself which he diesnt. he doesnt care about anything or anyone including himself. like i have to fight with him to showever , brush his teeth, and wash his face.it got to the point for discipline wise he ended up with nothing in his room but a bed and dresser. and he didnt care. he would just lay there on the bed and quietly hum to himself all quite content. he has a massive atttiude as all teenagers do i'm sure. he sneaks out of the house, steals from me and any guests i have in my house. so since taking any things doesnt work i try extra chores. he just hums to himself and does the chores. my partner tried the military aproach and making him do push ups ad strict wake up and bed time routines.. yeah ..he doesnt care. so i think maybe he is acting the way he acts because i do work long hours and dont always spend enough time with him. so i take a day when he hasnt been too bad in a while and make it all about him. spend every moment with him and just be with him. and guess what happens the next day ? his attitude is a thousand times worse. i just dont understand this kid and i dont know what to do with him. he has been to doctors and specialist and according to them my son only maybe has a small anger managment problem.!!! i just dont understand. so i avoid spending time with him because it keeps his attitude down and how right is that? so i dont know. any thoughts out there?
