My 4 and a half year old is quite aggressive, hyper and even hits himself in the head asking for my attention. I give him one on one attention everyday (alot) and we even go out together without his siblings for errands and special dates. I am very involved with his pre-k class (volunteering, doing an art project with the kids, guest reading, field trips). I am at my wits end. My older son (who is 13 now) was never like this and I am wondering what to do with my spirited son before this becomes a serious behavior problem that may lead to problems outside the home! By the way, he is a PERFECT ANGEL at school and they do not see any of the behavior we describe at home. However, it is worth a mention that he has been living in his imagination at home and school to the point that we have all asked if it is in the normal realm. Has anyone had a spirited pre-school child like this and what worked for you?
