First off, I hate sharing my personal problems or information with others but I don't know where to turn to at this point. My son is 4 years old, almost 5, and he has been having some serious problems at daycare and only daycare. He does have his moments at preschool and at home, but nothing like daycare. As of today he has flipped a shelf and a couch. He kicks, spits, hits, screams, runs out the door at daycare, etc... He has seen a therapist since he was three, he has a social worker, goes to a preschool with a 1:3 ratio, it's a special preschool for children with behavioral problems, I also work a lot with him at home. His intelligence is advanced yet his maturity level is slightly behind.
Now this extreme behavior at daycare did not start until after October 5th, why October 5th? Well that was the day he witnessed his father assault me, his father who he hasn't seen in over a year and before that he hadn't seen him more then an entire month out of his life. His has been lashing out so much, crying at the drop of a hat, it is so bad that when he was content playing one day the phone rang and he jump and cried hysterically (I think because it scared him).
I don't know where to go from here, I am a single mom I have absolutely no financial help from anyone and I have to figure out what I am going to do with my son once he hits strike 3 at daycare. I'm lost, I'm so lost and so upset all the time not only because of what I went through with his father but because of the torture and trauma he has caused my son and I.
If anyone has advice, anything at all I am willing to hear it. I need something and some support from anyone. I feel like absolutely no one understands what I am going through.
Thank you for taking the time to read.
