Q:

My stepbrother is 13 and no respect for anyone. Is there a way to cure him? We have tried everything.

He is 13 and has adhd. He does not listen. Is rude. Talks back. No, respect for anyone. I have never seen or met a younger person like this before. Have done everything to try to get him to better himself. He doesn't care. He even goes to a therapist.

What the Expert Says:

Insteading of looking at how you can change your brother's behavior look at how you can change how you respond to your brother.

Is it possible that your brother is learning that he gets more attention when he is being negative versus when he is being positive. So you want to show your brother that he will get more attention when he does positive things.

We have included several articles from our website parenting.org that you might find helpful.
