Posted by Anon_234121 i have 2 kids my oldest is 11 and my youngest is 18months-and last month my older brother and his family moved into our house while they were looking for a new one. Well my older brothers oldest son has add/adhd & at times can be very agressive exp. when he has "tunnle vision" where he will do whatever it takes to get what he wants.
well lately i have noticed that my son has become more agressive since they moved in & i really am unsure how to break this. he is my first boy so idk if its a boy thing or something he has picked up. I truely believe he has learned this behavior from my nephew. I miss my sweet baby who yes would have his moments by throwing a fit-but he wouldn't turn agressive. any advice??

Coloradomom22,
In order to stop the behavior in your son, you'll have to help control the behavior with your nephew. Sit down with your brother and share your concerns with him. He needs to help his son manage the disruptive and aggressive behavior. Just because your nephew has ADD/ADHD doesn't excuse him for aggressiveness. Good luck!
