My oldest child who is nearly four shows no empathy and is violent, destructive, and defiant. I cannot take my eyes off of him for a moment around my other two children; a physically handicapped 2 year old and a 10 month old baby. He is constantly attempting to harm them by kicking, biting, punching-even trying to jump on top of them. He tries to hit any athorative figure, even his grandparents. He is showing cruely to animals; we went for a nature hike today and they're we're some birds frolicking on the forest floor, he asked me, "Mama can I step on the birds to squish them"? I was beside myself. The neighbours cat next door is missing a leg, when he approaches the cat he tries to kick it, along with other cats/dogs he encounters. I cannot keep a tidy/healthy bedroom for him. He pulls his shelves off the wall that are nailed into the wall at only 3 years old. We reprinted his room a few months ago and where he sleeps he has picked all the paint off his walls. He has broken windows. He tries to jump out windows. I am lost. In bc Canada they won't do a thing until he goes to preschool (he's on the list) where a teacher can observe the said child interacting with his peers and then make referrals. I have tried literally everything. I need advice.
