Michelle T Posted February 14, 2008 Share Posted February 14, 2008 DS is 11.5. I would describe him as generally non-compliant, but NOT defiant. Meaning, he would never flat-out refuse to do something, be very defiant, be intentionally disrespectful, or deliberately do something he had been told not to do. However, he certainly does not have a desire to do anything just to please another. He will resist or argue doing most things, although he will do them with repeated direction. He does not really make much of an effort to do a good job, he does the minimum he can get away with, and sometimes barely even that. By the end of the day, I feel so tired of him. It wears me away constantly having to tell him over and over to do things, the backtalk or questioning of everything, the general slacker attitude and habits. Advice? Good books to read? :confused:I should add that DS does have raging ADHD, which I am sure adds to the problem, but is not an excuse.
