I am a single mother of 2 young children, 22 months apart. my oldest being nearly 7 and my youngest 6. My son (7) was diagnosed with ODD borderline CD at the age of 5. Wahoo I guess thats part of this forum.... Well recently he was excluded from school and at the moment there is no sign of him getting back in before middle of the year. This will be his 4 school since he turned 5. His sister is terrified of him, the local child agency (docs/cyfs) dont want anything to do with him as they believe that because he is only 6 nearly 7 any mother can handle them at that age. We have a child psychiatric involved with us as a family unit and seperately. For the past 2 years I have been fighting him non stop and it came to a point where i decided that for awhile the best situation for us all was for him to live with my sister. I dont like this arrangement at all but I cant see any way around it. I have no one to talk to about this that have or are in the same or similiar situation, the ones i do speak to just sit there and nod their heads as if I am crazy.
