He is now 6 years old and still acts like his little sister who is about to be 3 years old. I really don't know what else to do. I have tried everything from time outs, to taking away all priviledges, talking calmly to him, tried to give him responsability to make him feel like he's a big boy now, i never baby talk to him (nor have I ever), i treat him like he is older only because he is so smart. I haven't gotten him tested for ADD yet because the doctors here don't seem to believe me when I talk about how bad he really is. They always tell me that its a phase and it will pass but it hasn't. I am a stay at home mom and I spend endless hours with him entertaining him and playing with him but nothing ever seems to be enough. Please help with any advice. I refuse to put him on meds because of the stories i have heard and therapy is just too expensive. Its gotten to the point that his sister is now starting to act like him and starting to rebel like he does and I really cannot go through this again with my daughter...please help I am desperate at this point!! Any suggestions??
