How about some disciplined parents disciplining the child?
I don't at all mean to sound flip in my answer. My daughter was a holy terror...but I recognized that I was the one most out of control.
I learned new coping skills and HOW to discipline a strong-willed (maniac) child. I had to get smarter than my child...more creative, and most of all, more positive! I have since then disciplined some of the worst behaving kids of all ages with positive results...kids that had no good responses became affectionate and responsive to commands, WILLINGLY! I was not afraid of them or anything they could do and they knew it.
C'mon, parenst, don't give up so easily or allow
others to pressure you that drugs are the answer...maybe just for a very little while to get a handle on matters, but not as a solution!
Out kids deserve more than this.
This may not be the answer for everyone but you know if it is...
