I am writing this as at my wits end and dont know what to do..I have a 12 year old boy who I dont recognize anymore. He is rude and aggressive towards me. I suffer from depression and anxiety and my panic attacks are getting worse and more frequent. He is do angry with me all the time and talks to me like he is s gangster talking to people on the street. He has been caught vaping a few times and we have tried talking in calm manner, discipline etc but cant get through to him. Tonight I could smell burning in his room. He wont admit anything and got angry punching walls and laughing in my face. Me and ex share custody and we agree and talk a lot so we are both on same page. I love my son dearly but my mental health is st breaking point and I dont know what to do. I sorted counselling for his anger but that could take 3 to 6 months 😟😥 xxx
