He will not do as he is told, he becomes defiant, aggresive and it usually ends in tantrums, we are having difficulty parenting him. It is causing our family great upset, he laughs went he is getting a row, tells lies and is very controlling to his friends. We have looked at his diet , we just dont know where to go from here??

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum,
He has some behavioral issues which is a common finding for this age group students. Can be influenced a great deal by his friend circle. You need to pay less attention to these tantrums. Be strict with him if you need to. You can help him by giving him rewards when he does something which you ask him to do. You can consult a child psychologist for more assistance. Hope he gets better soon
