If I could just get my kid to behave...

My kid's behavior is out of control and I don't know what else to do!I know my kid is struggling but I don't know what else to try! I feel like I've tried everything, but nothing is getting my kid to obey me. Our home life is chaos! The tension in is high and all our relationships are suffering because of the constant strain. My kid won't follow instructions or obey the rules and routines I've set up. This causes constant FIGHTS with me, with my wife and with my other kids. I feel completely exhausted and overwhelmed. I feel like I should be able to handle it, but I just can't....

I need to know how to live my life without going crazy! I have so many of the things I've always wanted and yet somehow I feel unhappy in so many ways. I'm doing my best, but it just never seems good enough. Why can't I just feel happy more of the time? Why can't I figure out how to help my kid be respectful and responsible? My kid won't do what I say. I feel disrespected. I feel ignored. It's just not working!

At times I just give up trying, I put my head down and just try to SURVIVE another day. I start to wonder how long I can really endure this? Do I want to endure this? I really want to be SUCCESSFUL at parenting, but with this kid I'm feeling like a FAILURE. There's just nothing that works for this kid! There's no reward or consequence that seems to motivate them. They just won't listen and we keep FIGHTING the same battles day after day.

I have so many other things I want to be doing, but dealing with my kid's behavior is taking up all of my time and energy. I had big dreams for my life but I seem to always keep doing the same old things day in and day out. I can't figure out how to do it differently. I'm trying to just be happy with how things are, but really I want things to be different...I want to be in control and I want my kid to act appropriately so we can all feel happier...but I'm stuck because no one is one!

Life isn't going at all how I planned. Life keeps throwing me curve balls and I'm feeling stuck in a life I didn't choose for myself. I'm feeling like life just isn't fair. How can I be happy in this situation? I try to get away by working, but even when I'm at work I'm getting texts or calls about what's happening at home and it's difficult to focus. I try to escape the chaos by dreaming about hobbies I wish you could be enjoying or fun vacations I could take to get away, but those things won't happen because I can't leave my kid. If I could just get my kid to behave, then life could be normal again!

I am constantly battling feeling exhausted, anxious, frustrated, depressed, worried.... and I just feel stuck in this emotional spiral. I am filled with emotions that sometimes I don't even understand. I've tried to get out, but it seems impossible. The emotions I am feeling are affecting my family. Honestly, they're taking the brunt of it. Sometimes I just loose it. It's just too much. I know I have to figure this out, but my kid just doesn't care what I say.

I even took my kid to see the doctor, hoping they would tell me what I can do to help...hoping they'd have some answers. But they just gave me a lot of big scary words and no practical help for the problems I'm facing every day. I don't need someone to tell me what I should have done, my wife already tells me that. I just need someone to talk to other than my wife. I've talked about my feelings with her, but she's stuck in the same situation as I am and she doesn't have any new ideas or strategies. I need help, but it feels uncomfortable to ask for help. I'd like to get some new ideas, new perspectives that could help. Yep, I think I've tried everything...but I haven't tried Life Coaching...yet!

I told my wife about it and she thinks I should try it out...Could Life Coaching help me find the solutions I'm searching for?
