I think I am ready to throw in the towel. I basically feel hopeless in ever resolving issues with my 17 yo son. NOTHING works for him. I have tried one thing after another. None of it matters. I'm tired of the outbursts and then the apologies that follow, only for the same issues to be repeated. I ask him to work with me, not against me. I tried the DM work and the accountability plans. Having a conversation is nearly impossible because he's always ready to fight. When he hears something he doesn't like, he yells at me. I'm so tired of hearing STOP!!! I'm tired of being disrespected. I walk on eggshells all the time. Everyone in the house is at the mercy of my son's wishes.
