Our 3yr old son, is driving my husband and I crazy! He doesn't listen, and we have tried everything to discipline him. Nothing works. We hate to take him into public places like grocery shopping or out to eat, is nearly impossible. He is very independent, and a little OCD at times. Like he always has to stick his thumb in his juice, or he has to be the one to start and open the microwave...on and on....and if he doesn't get to do that he throws a temper tantrum that is out of control until he follows through with what he had wanted to do. He is very hyper also, never walks anywhere always running. If he goes out with just one parent he isn't too bad. He doesn't speak well either. Just a couple of words at a time, never sentences. I think he is behind in brain development??? I know he is "being a 3 year old boy" but i never see anyone else's kids acting like this while i'm out. I've read up on adhd and things like that, i defiantly think he has something of the sort. My husband and I are at wits end with his attitude and actions, it stresses us out so bad. We just want him to be a happy healthy boy and be able to communicate with us.
