hi i am a mother too 2 boys the oldest being 5, since he was 1 and a half hes been having really bad outbursts. he lays on the floor, kicks, screams, hits out etc. i was told by many docters its the terrible 2's come early and hell grow out of it. he has to have his own seat in the car, same seat on the bus, remebers everything like where hes been, what was there, whole book word for word so hes not stupid! he cant queue, he attacks people and moves them out of the way so he can be first and hes very compitive, he has to win and be first. hes also very strong so i cant restrain him when the epsodie starts! hes either really lovelable and good or really bad, nothiong triggers him. he can be sitting with you watching tv cuddling you, the next minuite hes hitting, punching, kicking swearing, throwing himself on the floor, etc. hes the same everywhere he goes and theres nothing to trigger him off, he runs around screaming and shouting and has started to make chicken noises for attention. at school he lays under the tablesz at dinner time swearing ( for attation) and because he doesnt get any he lashes out.. hes now 5 and he poos on the floor, wees around the house, knocks over full wheelie bins, swears, attacks me, his dad, friends anyone. hes hung off light fittings, pulled curtain rails off the wall, has no road sense and wonders out in front of cars, walks off from you and isint bothered if you arent around, and throw a tyre through the living room window smashing it! the last week of school he threw a brick at a childs head and had 3 adults try to restain him.
ive tryed the naughty step. he can sit there for up to a hour and still not calm down or underdtand what hes done wrong, ive tryed explkaining with books, a pasta jar, photos, egg timers, rewards lots of praise for good behavier, turining off the tv removing toys, removing him for the sitiution but NOTHING WORKS! the school have been involed and we have regular meets and adiary to try and see if theres a patteren but there isint. hes seen 3 chirocstists but they cant find anything wrong with him. hes seen a number of different docters but nothing and is due to see a ped in september. i personally think its a mixture of adhd and autism, but adhd has been ruled out my teachers but not anyone in the medical profession but they thin k mild autism or along them lines.
i really am at the end of my teather with him, ive got to the point where we dont go out because of how his outbursts are and i cant control him when he does them. does anyone have any advice?
is it something ive done thats made like this?
