Hi very new to this site.. I have many concerns about my son, whom is now 11 years old. It's been a struggle ever since my boy was born. As a new born he would cry none stop, would sleep only when held. Which made doing things with my other children quite difficult to say the least..As he grew, he always needed my attention and mine alone..I could not visit with anyone and actually enjoy a visit with out him hanging on me, or crying. I would take him to parks and he would never be interested in playing with other children. He would not share his toys, however would take other kids toys and assume they belonged to him. He would have sever tantrums when things didn't go his way, or he heard the word "NO"...He hated bath time no matter how many toys or bubbles i added to the water. He learned to climb out of crib very young age..and since then he runs, not walks......however, he is VERY smart, can carry on an adult conversation like no tomorrow! This is the confusing part of my son. He has such a big heart and yet is like Jekle and hyde...one minute happy the next destroying our home, and or talking/screaming how he wishes he were dead! and everyone else in the house. He has gone as far as grabbing a knife and chasing me and his siblings threating to stab us...we hide the knives now! I have been to see doctors and have also had him removed and living in a place that works just with difficult children...and has also been hospitolized. And now I am posting her today wondering what's going on. They (doctors) say its my parenting style, and yet I have raised 2 other children to whom are 20 and 17 and their great communicators, have tons of friends, respectful and I see I have done a great job in raising those two. Just my youngest has and still is tiring me right out...I do disagree some what that its all about my parenting...I do agree however that i need to be taught a different way in parenting this child as I do believe he is special!
