When my sisters son gave her issues, she'd make him spend energy doing sit ups, push ups, and little sprints. It got rid of that extra energy to talk back, but then again, he wasn't 8 yet. Now that he is older, she has put him in martial arts for the structure and discipline. They also have a strong faith. Her son has never owned any type of electronic unless it was earned...I think all of those things helped bit by bit. We, as parents have the hardest jobs in the world, and it's unfortunate that what works for one family, may not work for another. I'm sorry you are going through this mama! I'm thinking about you and sending patience and clarity your way!!
