Hi, I am new here and need a hug. I have a three year old with not particular diagnosis. His father has ADHD and a substance abuse issue. I am anxiety prone and on medications but I do not consider it a major issue. Anyhow, my son has been questioning me whether I love him no matter what he does. I said I love you no matter what but I do not like if you do bad things. Well, he has always been a difficult child but for the last 10 days he has been from hell. Hitting his teachers at preschool, biting his sitter, hitting me, throwing things at me, giggling all the while, defiant to every usual daily activity, mean to other kids. Just horrible. If I give him a time out, he hits even more or makes it into a fun run away game. He is wild. He has been evaluated by the school. They said they couldn't find anything wrong with him. He is still being evaluated for Sensory Integration Disorder (SID). I am not sure he is just not a brat. Nothing seems to get a hook into this kid that this is just not acceptable. I read the Explosive Child, already. I am not convinced he is inflexible. He is more just enjoying being a jerk, it seems to me. He gets wound up and is just uncontrollable sometimes. I am so frustrated! Thanks for listening.
