I am ready to pull my hair out. I am a single mother of two increasingly defiant boys. My eldest is sixteen and has been described by the school counselor is "oppositional defiant." He treats me terribly. He's always angry, always demanding. Although I do as much as I can for him, he rarely expresses affection or appreciation for what I do and is never apologetic after he's lashed out at me.
He is about 5 inches taller than me, 30 pounds heavier and a whole lot stronger. I am starting to be frightened in my own home. A couple of times he has moved toward me as if to strike. Plus, his little brother, who is twelve, is starting to take his lead and treat me like his older brother. I can't take this anymore!!!
My ex husband lives in another state. He knows about my eldest boy and his defiance, but does nothing to support me. In fact, I'm beginning to see that my eldest son treats me the same way my ex husband used to. I don't deserve this. I'm a good mom, but I'm frightened and really need your help.
Please tell me what to do.

This program will help you turn around your boys before it is too late. I know a number of parents who have used the program successfully, much to their relief. Don't hesitate on this because defiant boys do not get back on track themselves. They need help and they need to understand the limits. You can do this!
