Today, my son was kicked out of his back up daycare. His normal daycare provider just had surgery so that's why he's not there. My son has always been out of control, but since we've moved, its been what I thought was a 180. I thought those days were over. I then heard knews that he has been repeating his bad behavoirs and new ones. He's been kicking, screaming, head-butting and other physical things. He has also been saying he's going to 'cut your head off', 'i wanna be dead', 'i wanna kill myself'. Its horrifying! He has had so much progress and with all the changes in his little life finally coming to a halt, its extremely hard. He put his back up provider in tears today, refused to sit on the bus for his PM pre-k. He also gave his teacher a bloody lip when she tried getting him on the bus. I work during the day, so I can't be there. I have to trust 'strangers' with my child. He's extremely active and a handful. We were doing so good until the last 6 weeks or so. We've only been at our current address since July and for almost 4 months we were inbetween housing, after moving out of my sisters, who was also his daycare provider.
We have 2 kittens and a dog. He picks on the younges kitten and our 14 yr old dog. They just take the abuse. I keep telling him it hurts them and they don't like it. He laughs. I could go on and on even more.
I would appreciate any advice other than a schedule, earlier bed time, time-outs, and consistancy. I need examples. He goes to his first therapy session. I've had a parent aid, work with people from the state (thats how he got his IEP started so he could be admitted to pre-k his first of two years)
Any good books would be great!
