How do you do doctors appt./dental appt.? My son is PDD-nos and mood disorder-nos. Since he was little going to the doctor/dentist has been hell. He runs crazy, throws things, he doesn't want the doctor to touch him. He hits me, tries to dump out my purse, untise or take my shoes off. Forget getting shots, it takes up to 4 nurses to hold him down. Even a simple finger stick and it takes that many people to hold him down. He is seven and hasn't had his teeth cleaned he refuses to let them clean them, if they get him to open they can look for only a minute. They bribe him with everything they have, I try to bribe him. He leaves with all kinds of stuff, but never gets his teeth cleaned. They try to so hard and are so understanding. I don't know what to do. Does anyone have advice, how do you do it?
