My Teen Son is a Real Jerk to His Siblings

One of the most frequent discipline issues parents will have with their teen is them acting like a jerk towards their siblings. This can be difficult to deal with, as siblings tend to form their own dynamic which can be hard for outside parties to breakthrough. However, when the situation reaches extremes, parents must intervene for the sake of their children’s future.

Help Your Children Learn To Love Each Other

My son acting in a negative manner towards his siblings was a serious issue for my family for a number of years before we finally sought out help. Initially, this situation arose when he started spending time with a new group of friends from school. At first these new friends seemed fine, but I quickly began to notice dramatic behavioral changes. It started with him showing a lack of interest in family activities but quickly became much more antagonistic in nature. Within weeks, he had started calling his brother and sister names, sometimes to the point of driving them to tears. We tried to talk to him about this problem, but initially we failed to realize what a serious problem was developing. It was when the physical violence started that we knew professional help had become necessary. One day after a minor argument over which television program to watch, he punched his brother in the face repeatedly. This caused serious injury and made me and my wife realize that we had to intervene immediately. As a result, we sought out professional help from a treatment program and were thrilled with the results. After returning from treatment, my son seemed completely transformed and has now gone over two years without any of his former issues arising. To anyone who is struggling with similar issues in their own family, seeking out professional help as quickly as possible is the only solution I would personally recommend. I have seen first hand how effective and life-changing this can be.
