I am having some issues & I need some help or advice...
My son(whO is 3 1/2) is one of the sweetest boys Ive ever met, & he has a good nature (MOST of the time) but lately he's been acting like a crazy wildchild.... He doent listen to me or obey when I say something.... Ive tried yelling, popping his butt, time-outs, & Ive even started to throw out his toys when he's actin ugly to me..... NOTHING seems to stop him! I let him play with a friends son (theyre the same age) & he picked up quite a few bad behaviors from the kid.... He screams at me, throws stuff, & majorly acts out.... If he doesnt get his way, its like someone flipped a switch- he turns into a huge brat- screaming at me, kicking me, & he says he hates me....
I had hoped it was a phase, but its been 7 months now..... I dont know what to do anymore... Its gotten so bad that when I wake up every morning, I get a sense of dread... I am so exhausted dealing with this!
This morning, he dragged EVERY toy he has into the middle of his room... (He was in a pretty good mood so I figurd it wouldnt be too bad).... I asked him nicely to pick them up please, & he got right in my face, screamed NOOOOOO & tried to hit me!!!! I popped his butt & locked myself in the bathroom & cried my eyes out....
Im a single mom, so I dont get breaks... My only good friend is 6 months pregnant & shes on full bed-rest so I cant take him to her when I need a few minutes away.... I honestly dont know how much longer I can take this though. Ive talkd to his doctor, a therapist, & awoman who does evaluations on kids to see if they show signs of any disability & se said he shows signs of ADHD, but they cant treat that til the kid is 4. (which is 5 months away)
PLEASE, does anyone have any ideas, advice, or evensome support would be very much appreciated!!!!
P.S THANKS FOR READING THIS... I DIDNT REALIZE HOW LONG IT WAS LOL
