Mom of a 15 yo ADHD son...

I'm already feeling very thankful that I found this message board.

At the moment I am a very stressed and frightened mom of a 15 yo ADHD, possibly ODD, possibly Bipolar son. He has, in recent months, stopped going to school, gotten very angry and has expressed violent tendencies (not so much at me, but you should see all the holes punched in my walls!), and talks to me in a very vulgar and disrespectful way. If I say no to him, he bullies and harasses me. If I go into my room and close the door, he will stand outside of the door and knock for 30 minutes at a time. If I am at work, he will ring my phone over and over and over again. I am a single parent and am at my breaking point.

I think in the very near future, he will be hospitalized and evaluated. I am also considering a group home, but that would be a very difficult decision to make. Again, I am so grateful to have found this board.

Welcome to your new home, Hallie I'm glad you've found us, and even happier that you've decided to introduce yourself!

I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your son, but keep your chin up! There is always hope. While you are gathering all the info you need to make a decision regarding your son, please feel free to pick our brains and ask as many questions as you like!

Again...welcome!!!
