I have 2 boys, 6 &8 yr old. I love them dearly. They are completely different from each other. My 6yr old has services to help him get by in school and he is doing great and then I have my 8 yr old who has issues as well and just now qualified for services. But I feel what I have to deal with at home is more the problem. My 8yr old is very defiant and cries on the drop of a pin. Out of crying ranges he has he says things that very much upset me, but at the same time I also feel he might do it for attention. Example. During his anger and crying he will say he is so stupid. Or he just wants to die. Now don't get to upset by this everyone. Kids do say things to upset their parents and not mean them, but he says it all the time and he just won't stop. One second he wants my attention of hugs and kisses and then a second later he is freaking out over something and crying and saying hurtful things. I can't control it. It's constant. Does anyone have these problems? Can he be bi-polar or just a 8 yr old boy having a very emotional side?
