I am a very patient, sensitive, understanding person, but even I am past the end of my rope with him. I've read all the books by all the experts, but nothing is helping much. I love him with all my heart. He can be a very sweet, kind, loving, giving, funny little boy. And oh, those big brown eyes! But 90% of every day is just impossible. We are literally almost homebound because of his behavior. My 6 yr old is tired of hearing that no, we can't do this or do that because of his brother. Of course I don't tell him that the reason we can't do things is because of his brother, but he knows that's the reason. And that's creating hard feelings and more problems.
Enough is enough. His preschool teachers, our friends and family, and now also his Dr. all think he is one of those kids who truly may need to be on medication. I don't like drugs. I even gave birth to all 3 of my boys without the use of any drugs. But I think my son may really need it. So the question is what drug to try. I would love to hear your experiences and advice.
