I'm new here, and needed to vent. Feel free to offer advice, I have done MANY things with this child. I have no friends to call, no one to talk to, so I thought a place where my son's behaviors are not unheard-of would be a good place to vent. My son is 7 years old and has been diagnosed with too many things to remember, yet none of them fit him. His behavior cycles a lot. At one point, not too long ago, he was tantruming 10+ times each day. Earlier this year I thought we had turned a corner, but last week he completely crashed. At the moment, I can't stand him. I love him, but I don't like him one bit. His line of the week is "I hate you, get the hell away from me". And his usual lines are "NO, I'm not going to f****** do ____ (insert any chore/request)" or "nope, nope, nope, F U". He hits, pinches, spits, curses, and refuses to do most anything asked. If it's time to go somewhere, he runs upstairs. Time to leave the park, he runs to the other side. He screams when his hair is washed. Screams when it's time to take a bath, screams when it's time to get out. He screams at his sister for talking or coming too close to him. Yells that she never plays with him. He screams that we never have food, refuses most foods, and is thrilled when the "pediasure man" comes. I have to physically restrain him at least once each day to get him to calm down. He is never happy, except for the short moment after he gets something, which he will not be for a while. We have a behavior therapist who says he's the most difficult kid she's worked with. He receives occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy, each twice weekly. Behavior therapist is with us 3 hours each week. This seems like a lot, but everything was just increased due to his behavior. No sleep disorders, gets more than adequate sleep each night. He does not go to school, he's homeschooled. His behavior, overall, is better than his school days. I'm lost with this kid and he's just getting bigger and more out of control. He's tried a few different medications but had immediate allergic reactions to them all. Every morning, he's the best kid ever. The first hour after he wakes is awesome. He's loving and compliant. Every evening before bed, he apologizes and says he's going to try harder to behave. He likes to cuddle, hates seeing me upset, would defend his sister or me in a death match. He's usually very remorseful and embarrassed about his behavior.
