My 9 year old stepson has adhd and he is in therapy, he is also taking proper medication that has made a world of difference for the positive. So the issue is that he is constantly misbehaving. He is a pathological liar and a thief. He has gotten detention for taking iPads from one class in school to recess and then claiming other teachers let him do it. He has taken money from my room, nothing major just enough to buy snacks or book fair items. He takes candy in basically any form and will steal it from his siblings or us if its left out. He also has a history of bullying. I have tried every way possible that I can think of to get this kid to see the error of his ways I have given him chores to do. I have grounded him. I have lectured him and tried to really connect with him. I have tried to get him to do outdoor activities work on cars with me and other men to see good examples other than me. There is no punishment no positive reinforcement that can get his brain to see consequences for actions it's like he has a reset button and nothing works. Please help.
