Hello Moms,

I am very new to this and I just really need some advice. My son now 5 has been very defiant since age 2 but then we didn't think much of it because he was just in the "terrible" 2 age and it just carried on to 3 but then when he started VPK at age 4 it got bad, I would get calls at least 2-3 times a week about his behavior and it got to the point that he was getting so fryustrated he would kick and scream when the teacher would try to get ahold of him and he even tried to run out of the daycare.It has always been like this his behavior has always caused some concerns but I always thought it was normal toddler behaviors, I just don't know what to do he does not like to listen it takes 4-5 times of me telling him something before he even does what i want him to do and if that because he will just throw a huge fit and start crying as if someone has hurt him, I recently took him to the Doctor to get him a physical for school and even the doctor found his behavior to be of concern he referred me to a neurologist he thinks he may have add or autism but we aren't really sure.I thought Kindergarden wouldn't be like when he was in VPK but it is, his first week has been tough for him and his teacher as well she has to focus all of her attention on him sometimes because he is just not focused and will not listen to her and it is hard for her to carry on with the class.I honestly don't even know how to handle my own son and it is terrible I just hope someone out there can relate to me and at least give me some type of advice on how to handle it.
