    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    I have a teen son who is just totally defiant towards my husband. This is not his father but he has raised him since he was 3. My son and my husband get into screaming matches over things that we would just handle. It has gotten to the point now where my son will run from the house at night if I am not home. If I am I am usually able to diffuse the situation. I have no idea what to do at this point.

    I would suggest professional help - a really good LMFT that can work with you and your husband, and then all 3 of you together.

    I don't believe problems such as this will just work themselves out on there own....you guys need a new approach before something serious happens.

    Take care,
    -Kathleen
