The doctor said to wait get him in school and he would act better but he is not. He can be happy one minute and total tick off the next. Screaming kicking throwing thing tearing stuff up. And he does this at school to. He wont do his school work. he is also having difficulty learning and retaining stuff. We have tried time out take stuff away. I hate to admitt it but even spaking. I cry my self to sleep everynight i dont know what else to do nothing is working. Does someone have advice.

I am in the same situation!!! My son(who is adhd) is fine at school, but horrible at home. He traded our ps2 for a bike. And is stealing, and taking things apart. We got him into counseling. Stinks that the next session can't come sooner. Unfortunately, the counselor is on vacation and full for another 2 weeks. I don't agree with the spanking and hitting your child in the mouth. As like you, I have cried myself to sleep. I am lost. Yes, I have spanked him. Did it do anything, no. It made me feel worse. Nothing physical towards your child is going to help the situation. I've been trying to reassure him that I love him and make sure I spend quality time with just him and no other siblings. I would suggest a counselor, too. They may help him talk about what is really bothering him. There are many kid friendly ones, that will come down to his level. Not sure if any of this helped. Hang in there, I know it is rough. Sometimes, I feel like there is nothing left to do. But, I know it is a phase, that has to be nipped in the butt now. Best of luck

Thanks Stephanie And Cynthia The school is calling in a behavioral specialist and the principal to test him and see if they can help him. It just cant come soon enough. The more i read up on adhd i beginning to think that is what is wrong. Best of luck stephanie with your son. I feel like a failure with him. My oldest daughter was the perfect child and then there peyton. I lots of time with him. We have tried to do things on a positive note instead of negative. And that seem to help a little. But not enough.

My children didn't do this, so the only advice I can give is that you take him to a physicologist. They can test him for disorders or tell you if it's just behavior issues.
