I was just trying to get him up and dressed for school. He is so hard to do both. His clothes were picked, he changed his mind and picked a hard button type that's for home. The teacher said don't send him in that because he has trouble with the button. He grabbed a plastic knife and threatened to cut if off and I asked him nicely to give me it. He acted as if ( I thought ) he put it down and he swiped me with it! Im so done with his DR.s not believing me. Why in the helk (trying not to say a bad word) would I make this up? I don't want my child to be violent and so uncaring. Private catholic school to teach him morals about GOd over $4,000 dollars each child a year! (grandfather and aunt pays for that not me) Not including all the extras! My grandfather wants to pull him out because he says he's unhappy there,( he thinks) but what he doesn't understand is that I WILL have the same trouble at a public that I do a private. He just does not act up at school..not enough to get the teachers to write the DR...period. So he is biting himself again and his well check up is today. Im wandering what they will say, will they roll their eyes at me again? His anger is like a switch again, but turning him off is the task. He also keeps turning the refrigerator dial down/off he does this on purpose and does not care, he does this out of anger, he knows it will ruin the food. He purposely pours water,milk,food on the floor when hes mad or we don't do as he is or fast enough. He kicks and hits us again... I tell him "I love you" everyday. Well he 99% of the time refuses to say it back. I explained what love is again... he still wont say it. He always has to have his threats and temper. When he is actually in a good mood I want to freeze time and keep it that way. So guess what? I'm investing in a 24 hour surveillance camera set up in the Kitchen,yard,living room. And I will record him for at least a month so I have enough proof that's its not just a bad week or me or whatever. And than I will demand his DR to see it ( I will not leave his office until he does) and start walking in to these Neuro places and not leave until they see it too! Im so scared, even a friend of mine who had never ben around him said that he is going to beet me up when he is a teenager and I didn't even tell him everything! Not even half! This man has anxiety and he said he believes this is one of my sons issues, well ya, but no one will help me! I have that book Explosive Child, now tomorrow I will buy the other one (again-I have no idea what happened to it) "What your explosive child is trying to tell you". Thanks for listening, again... I hope this works and I will respond to the others here, just give me a few hours to get some caffeine!!!! I need my relaxing drink of soda!!!
