My 7 yr old step son has adhd and is on medication, but has temper tantrums and sometimes he gets so angry that he tries to hurt himself. so far he has told us he hates himself, wants to be someone else, doesn't want to be alive, bites and hits himself, and just today, said he doesn't want his arms anymore, and attempted to break his own arms. what can i do?
He is also very whiny and cries easily when he doesn't want to do what he is told. He is more baby-ish than my 4 yr old. Is this part of the adhd as well?
