Just wondering if anyone else out there has experience with a violent child that has any advice? On Friday he got so mad at me because he didn't want to go back to school after his speech therapy appointment, that he scratched me with a pen that someone made its way into the backseat, he grabbed hold of my hair while i was driving and pulled as hard as he could. And the icing on the cake...he stabbed me in the back with the pen. When we got to his appointment I went into the vestibule to call his therapist and he came out and smacked the phone out of my hand. I bent down to pick up all the pieces of my phone and he slapped me. A few minutes later when i was holding him to restrain him from kicking me, he knocked his head into my face and I know have a black eye. I'm so heartbroken, we had a crisis evaluation and at the end the lady said, I didn't seem happy. Really lady?
