Hi Everyone, After having two playdates in one day end because of my son's aggression, I just had to find some support. My son is a bright, curious, creative, affectionate, funny, social (or perhaps aspiring to be social), energetic, impulsive, often physically aggressive with other kids, impulsive, and exhausting. We are stuck in a heart breaking cycle of isolation because everytime we are around other kids his age or younger, someone gets hurt and we have to leave. He has been evaluated by a developmental pediatrician and a pediatric psychiatrist who both speculate that ADHD and/or sensory processing disorder (hyposensitive) could be eventual diagnosis. He currently has a diagnosis of adjustment disorder with mixed disturbance of emotion and conduct. He will be undergoing an Occupational Therapist (OT) evaluation and a general evaluaition by the county within the next few weeks. I know we are on the right path to getting services and hopefully improvement is on the way. BUT, he starts preschool in 5 days and I am really worried about the safety of the other kids and the ability of the teachers to prevent and handle his aggression. He will always hit if someone takes something from him, which I do not condone but can at least comprehend. It's the seemingly random incidents that trouble me so much. Just today he walked up to a girl at the playground and threw a fistfull of sand right in her eyes. They weren't even playing together, and the poor thing didn't even see him coming. I am getting to tired of seeing the look in other parents' eyes when these things happen- pure disgust at both of us. I have become the ultimate helicopter mom because I feel it's my duty to be within an arm's reach at all times (this will obviously not be the case at school). I am really just looking for someone to tell me that they have experienced this, and that things got better. And perhaps some advice on how to face the world everyday with all of this going on. I am a social person, as is my son ironically, and we are both bored and lonely because of this. Thanks for reading this long post, and thanks in advance for any replies.
