Parents Support One Another @ MyOutOfControlTeen.com/support = I need help with the following issue:
I started your program a few days back and I need some help. My 15 yr old refuses to do anything and I mean anything we ask him to do and he refuses to be grounded when he does something wrong. For instance if we say , you can not watch TV for 3 days, he will do exactly that. To make him honor the grounding, we take away the TV access card. As soon as we do that he will find something that interest in, and of course, annoy us to do. When we deny him access to that one he will find something else. The process continues till there is nothing worth taking away. At this point, one would think he will comply, but all he says is that "I am already grounded, what is there to loose."
The other issue I have with this attitude is that, he makes the whole family suffer-his sister can not watch TV, no internet etc and since he does not care, he just goes on annoying people . What do I do?
