My 10 yr old son cannot listen and blames everything that happens on someone/something else and I have no idea what to do and haven gotten any advice from anyone that works. There's more than that stuff, but no need to get into the nitty gritty. I've tried every type of punishment and positive reinforcement I can think of with him and nothing works. I know part of it is him getting spoiled when he was little because he was the first kid the wife and I had an the first on either side. He just has no responsibility and little caring for anyone else when it doesn't involve him benefiting in some way. It's been going on for a few years, even before my wife and I talked about having a second kid. He acts just like my brother in law which isn't a good thing.
I'm really just venting because I want to I guess. Blah
