I hospitalized my 10 yr. old son this evening, due to his behavioral problems. This is his first time being hospitalized for this problem and Im devastated!! He has had outpatient therapy, gone through several programs, has an IEP @ school, we utilize structure and discipline @ home.......I feel as though Im failing him.....This was my last resort. I dont know what I will do if this doesnt work.....he has no regard for authority, is disrespectful, disruptive, disobedient, throws temper tantrums for hours @ a time....We as a family have also done family therapy to gain insight and tools to decrease these behaviors, I feel as though they have escalated......if there is anyone who has gone through anything like this and found even the smallest relief please feel free to share... Im at my wits end..this is ripping my family and my household apart.
