Hello everyone, I am new here and am lookinf dor a place to get some help. My boy was awake 22 hours on 24 when he was born and spent most of his time crying while mommy was doing everything she could to make sure he had everything he needed. Now he is 7, still crying, in the form of huge fits but less often as he grows. He's in a pissy mood most of the time no matter what we do to try and make him happy. Anything triggers a fit and now he won't start swearing and it's driving us crazy. He continues even though he has to endure the consequences given to him. I have to be very creative in finding consequences and nice things to congradulate him when he acts nicely. Well, I'm very tired of thinking and trying to find ways to help him. The doctors, social workers etc just drive me up the wall repeting the same things that just don't work here. I took a fit after his psychiatrist I was so sick of it. You'd think after so many years of working with parents they could have more answers, but no. I feel all alone with the problem. Since I'm the only one patient enough to take care of him without knocking the lights out of him (he is very provocative), I have nobody to help and give me a break. When I sent him to a camp for a break, he came back 10 x worse. Seems like he picked up the bad habbits of other children along with his own. Anybody have experience to share with me please ?
