My oldest son is 4, turns 5 in October. My youngest son is 3, turns 4 in October. My youngest is Autistic (high functioning).
My oldest, Jackson, is a huge handful. He talks ALL THE TIME. He seems to be a ball of energy that is in constant motion. He interrupts people (but says "excuse me"), seems to not have any self control. He breaks things that don't belong to him (very rarely things that belong to him). He screams when he cries if he doesn't get what he wants.
My biggest issue is that he is mean to his brother. Today he pushed him so hard that his mouth banged the floor and he started bleeding. He hits him, kicks him, and pushes him. Riley (my youngest) never defends himself, so it really alarms me that Jackson does this. I have tried to explain his autism, but it is way more than a 4 year old can comprehend. I ask him if he likes hurting his brother and breaking other people's things. Every time he answers "Yes".
Who can I take him to see?
