Hi I am carli 29 mother of 2 boys a 7 year old and 2 year old. In the past year and a half my husband and i have found out our 7 yr old has brain damage (suspected from birth old injury), he has vision problems, mild cerebral palsy, speech problems, and recently been diagnosed with ODD and major depression disorder. We are not the type of parents who are open to letting him know anything is wrong and treat him like a normal child. The ODD has gotten worse we have tried to get the doctor to switch his medications but they keep upping the dose instead. The fits have went from one to 3 or more a week. We have tried grounding spanking taking privileges away and now we have to physically restrain him in fear that he will hurt himself or someone else. He does bite himself and others. He will find weapons (like a broom) if he can. We dont know what to do anymore. We are afraid our 2 year old will pick up his habits and we will have 2 out of control children. If anyone can give me some advice or help thank you so very much. I dont know what else to do.
