I need some help finding out what to do with my 5 year old. When i turn my back on him he does something nuts like chop on my cat with scissors. he has been living with me for almost 2 years now and right when he came from his dads i had problems with him beating my Dog with a big stick. I took him to get tested and they said post tramatic stress disorder, ADHD possibly, Speech delay. Well the problem here is that he lies non stop and is getting more violent. I cannot tell if hes lying or telling the truth anymore. I have a 3 year old and he hurts her as soon as i turn my back on him. I cannot trust him at all with her. His impulse control doesnt exist at all. If he sees something hes gotta touch it. I have had him in behavior therapy and also hes been seen by a psycologist for a little while. Its to expensive and they wanted him to come every week. My question is who will diagnois this without him having to be seen a lot of times? I dont know what to do anymore with him. He throws fits constantly. If you say no he throws fits. I have to keep him entertained or he will cause problems. I seen yesterday he was playing with my 3 year old and he picked up a big peace of wood and pointed it to her stomach like he was going to stick her with it. If i wouldnt of been looking he would of done it. He is so easily irrated. If my 3 year old sings a song for a few mins then he gets mad and yells at her. Tonight he hit her with a coat hanger after i already told him not to hit. I do not think his mean ways are ADHD. I have told so many people about the problems with andrew and no one seems to want to help me with him. I have told so many doctors even his pediatrician. How do i get him help to control his anger? Every day seems to be getting harder. My son cant wait for my husband to go to work because i am not as hard as my husband. My huband doesnt know what to do either. I am worried hes going to hurt my 3 year old. I have been struggling with him since he was 3 years old. Unless the punishment is so bad he will continue doing what he wants. What if the punishments that i have end up not working at all then what do i do? My huband has been off of work for a week now on vacation and im scared for him to leave me with my son. Not really because im scared of him its because he is awful if my husband isnt around. He wont listen to me. I have even had him laugh at me when i have given him a spanking. I dont spank him anymore because of it. I take his favoriate toys away from him. Will this disorder go away or does it only get worse? Does my son need to be in a special school? Im confused because hes so young to have this disorder. Hes got speech delay and ADHD. Plus the behavior issues. Im just worried about him. I love him but i dont know how to help him. I want him to be happy but he is never happy. He is so Negative and he loves violence. He has been evaluated by arkansas children hospital for 2 hours because of the animal cruelty and his speech delay. Does anyone know what i should do to help him? He comes from a dad thats a sociopath. Hes a con man. I dont know if this has effected my kids genetics or not. I have told all the doctors of all the heck this guy put us all threw so seems like they would know my sons got a lot of problems. My son isnt in school because they told me we make to much money for him to go into prek. We are in bankrupsy,we dont have the money for school,We have 4 kids and the other kids seem to be normal and i was with his dad for 7 years and all of the kids are his kids. I dont even have the money for the therapist. This year he will be in school. Guys if you have any suggestions for us please let us know. We love this boy with all of our heart and would hate to see him grow up to do some terrible things to people. Can these kids be fixed? I sure hope so. Its hard when your kids seems to hate life and they are so young. And the problem is he thinks hes the one being wrongly done and hes the one causing the chaos for everyone even himself. Its an awful disorder. I wish doctors would help more when someone comes to them with complaints like this. My next step is probley going to be the SSI office and tell them that i have a violent child. We are at our witts ends with his behavior.
