I have a son who is 5 years old..he has a sister who is 7 and a little brother who is 19 months old....the thing that is confusing me is the fact that when i ask him to do something he looks at me with a vague expression on his face and shrinks into him self.. i don't understand why he does it.. i ask him if he's understood what iv'e said and he looks at me blankly.. he can hear perfectly fine as hes been tested... if i ask him to clean his room he will spend about two hours in there and do nothing...his sitter at that age would clean both her room and his room.... one day he spent 6 hours in his room..i would go up every half an hour to check on him to find him sat on the floor holding a toy and doing nothing else but sitting down and holding it...i ask him..''what are you doing'' he would reply with..''i don't know''..i would say ..''what are you meant to be doing''.. he would reply...''i don't know..!!''...
its getting me frustrated and worried as i don't know if hes just being lazy or that..he really doesn't know...
what should i do...iv'e considered taking him to the doctors for tests but our doctors are pants...and i don't know if i'm just being silly... i cant change doctors as we live in Germany as my husband is in the army and basically you get what your given..
