I have a 2 yr old son who I'm terrified is at the least adhd. He is extremely smart, every stage early. But he's mean, defiant, you name it. I know there's terrible 2's. But I also have an 8 yr old son who is adhd, odd, mood disorder & psychosis. My 2 yr old even bullies- hits, bites, throws things at him. Some actions yes, he's seen from his brother. But most of the things I worry about are the same things my 8 yr old did, but not this early. No pain concept for either boy, defiant, aggressive, destroys EVERYTHING in my house, can unlock and open every door, has ripped every child lock off everything, doesn't stop until he passes out. Doesn't sleep well, its a non stop list. My husband doesn't handle my 8 year holds diagnosis very well & swears I'm wanting an excuse for the behavior. No punishment works, took toys, spanking is useless, no pain, teaches him to hit, time outs are complete meltdown with kicking and screaming. I am so overwhelmed. I cannot accomplish anything in my house, can't take my eyes off him for 5 seconds. If I am not 100% focused on him its terror mode. I feel like I'm repeating the last 8 years. I in no way want brayden to struggle as drake has. I'm just not sure what to do anymore. I'm open for any ideas.
