My 5 year old son throws tantrums. He whines constantly. He cant consentrate on anything and cant focus long enough to complete work at school, or finish dinner in less than an hour. He is obsessed with who's first weather its the lunch line at school or which of my 3 young children I hand a cracker to first. He is also constantly talking about what's fair and not fair. He started Kg (full days) last fall. He was throwing some tantrums then but it has progressivly gotten worse at school. I get calls atleast twice a week. He screas , yells, stomps, kicks things, and has knocked over chairs. Last week he cried for an hour his teacher said, unable to control himself even after the screaming stopped. Honestly parenting him has been unique from the beginnig, even before a year old he could scream for an inordinatly long time. On a road trip when he was 7 months old he screamed for half an hour before we pulled over (middle of nowhere) and took him out of his car seat. He quit crying immediatly. we stayed half an hour. When I put him back in the seat he screamed all the way home. 1 hr 20 min. (nothing wrong or uncomfortable with seat or clothes that i could find). So this capacity he has I know has always been there. As the years have passed we have tried all th usual suspects (time out, spanking, reward, charts, restriction from things he likes. Our only success at home has been to send him to his room all alone. Oh, he still throws the fit, he just doesnt come out till hes done. He is excepting and compliant with- this about 75% of the time. But at school he gets upset and wont or cant calm down. He will most likely repeat kg as his teacher feels it may be a maturity issue...and I hope she's right. He is amiddle child sister 4 brother 7. He is also youngest in his class as he wont turn 6 till July. My husband. and I argue about discipline. I dread the telephone ringing because I just know its the school again. Any advice would be appreciated. I have been treated in the past for anxiety. I have cousin on my mothers side who is diagnosed adhd BiPolar (BP) and anxiety disorder and my father is BiPolar (BP) (undiagnosed).
