I bought a bundle of courses for parents and am working my way through. I think my son is completely stuck in Defense Mode so I know we need to work on that first. But are there any resources or advice for dealing with the way he talks to us in the meantime? I’m worried I can’t get my husband on board to help lower the stress level if every interaction ends with my son yelling and swearing at us. We’ve never found consequences remotely effective for this behavior since they just escalate the situation and don’t help him change his behavior the next time.
