Help My 5 year old twin son will not stop hitting and hurting his friends at Daycare...it is gotten to become an issue where it is everyday, he is hurting the kids bad at times and I am worried about this, I have talked to him asked him questions set punishments, changed diets and I have called his Doctor office and a place to send someone out to evaulate him. I am having no help or luck I dont know what more to try he will start school soon and they will not tolerate what he is doing. Anyone have an suggestions what to do?

That is so weird. I would think that a PEDs doctor would be more prompt in making a suggestion to see someone for an evaluation.

That was the best I could offer to you. And another thing, I would be calling the doctor and ask why they are not referring him for any kind of evaluations at all. If you get an answer that is very bland or not one at all, I would consider finding another doctor or going for a second opinion.

I finally have a number for a lady who works thru the school who does these observations waiting for a call back

There should be places that you could go and get an evaluation done. I would call the public school system in your area and gets some names and phone numbers of places that you can get those evaluations done. One he does go to school, if evaluated and found to have any kind of issues, then the school can help implement what is needed to work with him.

He never looks me in the eye and says I don't know he knows it's wrong too he can tell you what he isn't suppose to do...daycare just calls me to come get him they say they try calm him down how idk from what I'm told other kids don't do anything to him they are just playing alone when he does it. I've made him sit on his bed no tv for the night taken his favorite toys away but he doesn't seem to care he says I won't do it again but then does he just laughs at me when I try telling him he can't act that way

What does he say when you talk to him? Why does he think he needs to hit the other kids? What are the other kids doing to make him react that way? What punishments have you tried, and how long do you stick to them? What does the daycare do when he acts up?
