Help! Behavior issue with my son born at 26 weeks.

Lindsey - posted on 08/13/2015 ( 2 moms have responded )




My son was born at 26 weeks weighing a pound. He is now 2 and a half and is barley talking. He bangs his head on the floor when he is frustrated and just yells and screams all day, he hardly ever has an appietite. I feel like I have hit a brick wall with him and get so frustrated and then feel bad because I know he acts the way he does because he was preterm. I can not get him to listen to me at all and he is very hyper active. I just feel like a failure and don't know where to start.

Have you had his hearing checked? Many of his behaviors are because he can't communicate with you or possibly can't hear. Get his hearing checked and get him into speak therapy.
