My son can be very belligerent sometimes. This is why we won't/don't spank. He can be so infuriating it really sets me off. Sometimes I need the time out more than him.
He by the way asks for a spanking instead of time out I think because he either has no nerve endings in his bottom or it is over quicker. Which is all the reason more that we use time out. hahaha
Have you read 123 Magic? If not try to get a copy. It really does work if you follow it. And the stories he has in there will make your son seem tame - seriously - there are even children in his book that are more destructive and belligerent than my son. Except I did ask our Behavioral Ped (who is writing the next release of 123 magic with the author right now) if he ever had a patient take a hostage and he said no. Well my son has. He took his little sister hostage into one of this time outs I am wondering if we will make it in the next book.
Anyhow, sorry you are having a hard day. Most of my days are hard with my boy.
((((hugs))) I am so sorry hun, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel, my 10 year old was like that too for a loooong time, he has gotten better. Don't get me wrong, he has his days, but as he gets older he has gotten better.
