sorry to phrase it that way but things just do "suck" right now. My son has been belligerent, defiant, angry, whiney, fussy...do I go on? Please, do let me. When my son has fits he has these "in your face" fits. He can't go off and have a tantrum somewhere, no he has to get right in your face with it. He is either whining and begging for something back and when that doesn't work he is enraged and screaming. The only thing that works right now is for me to lock myself in a room, but that doesn't really work. He gets destructive and starts tearing the house apart because he knows it will get me out. The same goes for being in his room. He'll tear it end to end if I make him stay in it. The child will not go away to cool down. I have to get the full blown in your face rage. On top of this is the new level of defiance he has risen to (or should I say lowered himself to). He will deliberately defy myself or my husband and then have an all-out fit when the consequences come. I want to beat my head against a wall. My husband and I are coming to our wits end with him and each other. Sensory issues are coming to the forefront as well, and anti-social behavior and anger are reaching new heights. My son can hold a grudge better than an betrayed old woman. Slights get blown so far out of proportion that I don't think he'll ever talk to some people again. I'd like to know what the heck is going on. We've found a new pyschologist but we can't even get into see her until May, and then it will be biweekly after that. So I have no one to gripe to or seek advice from.
The latest changes in my son's life are that his grandmother left last month after an extended visit. He started T-ball, which is not going well at all but I want him to stick it out till the end. And he was sick and out of the "social circle" of homeschoolers for two weeks. Going back to our social activities has not been easy at all. I just want to tear all my hair out. Did I mention that my husband is going TDY for a week? You think maybe he set this up on purpose???????????
bless my son, because I still do love him
bless me for not wrapping him up in a box and sending him to siberia
and bless you for reading this
