Hi all Well, we have recently arrived back in Morocco after spending six weeks with my mother in England. J starts a new (French) school here in a week's time. Things have not been great. In a nutshell. HUGE meltdowns this summer, much worse than ever before - nasty, aggressive, swearing, hitting - and a real problem with hard-core swearing which J heard all over the place in the UK and repeated everywhere with gusto. At the same time he discovered stunt scootering and we went regularly to the skate park in the town... he's great at it, really a natural, with great courage and intuitive knowledge of how to move. Some people were amazed that he was going down the huge ramps at just six. He's been so "difficult", oppositional and aggressive that I begin to fear for the future. Really quarrelsome with other children, again much worse than before. Is it all the changing around, or at least partly that? Is this just the normal progression of the disorder, intensifying as he gets older? My patience has been very thin at times and my stress levels sky high. I'm still not very good at ADHD... Sorry for the gloomy post!!
