I put J to bed about 20 minutes ago and he is still awake, chattering to himself. This literally never happens. Today he had his roller skating class and after I picked him he was more defiant and rude than usual, harder to manage, really not listening to me at all. There was a child's birthday at school today and he was given a bag of sweets, which he was eating through the evening (I got him to save some until after supper). I never usually buy him sweets (he has chocolate sometimes). I am thinking... wondering... could it be additives in sweets that are making him like this? Or maybe just so much sugar. Anyone else had experience of this? If he were like this all the time, I really don't think I could cope well - already yelled at him and then he got really upset saying "Talk to me nicely!" The usual moments of sweetness mixed in with the difficult behaviour. He didn't want to brush his teeth (but that is not new) and when I insisted, he started sobbing as though his heart would break and declared "I am going to call the polices because you want me to brush my teeth!"
