My son is only 2 and working with 14 2yr olds all day, i realize most of them have moments of being squirmy and loud etc...My son acts out VERY badly some times, has had a bad biting spell, screams and is irrational alot and CAN NOT sit still at all! He gets very overwhelmed when noise levels are elevated (a party at school for example) and really acts out then. he also is scared to death when something like the dryer buzzer goes off, he runs screaming! He melts down constantly. I have 2 other children (5yr old and 4yr old girls) and while hyper at times or an occational melt down, they have moved past all that and i never had them act the way my son does. I am usually calm with him and that seems to help...could he have ADD or something? My ex husband (my children's father) was diagnosed as a child with both ADD and ADHD and was never treated in any way for it. I believe he is too young for tests etc.. what can i do to help him learn to be calm?!
