Hi, I've never spoken to anyone before, except my husband who says "he'll grow out of it". My 6 year old son is very confusing to me & difficult, which is becoming worse & worse. No conditions seem to fit. School have never voiced any concerns, in fact say he's wonderful & v.clever often joining the next class up. He has alot of friends and can be sensible, caring and "normal". The majority of time though he's argumentative with me and his dad, will blatantly ignore adults when they ask him questions in a general chat even though he's heard them, will answer back all, of which could be down to my parenting. But then he gets into these odd phases of repeatedly saying a made-up word in a high pitched voice, doing a really queer laugh & there is just no getting through to him when he's like it. As though he cannot stop doing what he's doing, he's just not "there". and if he gets something into his head that he wants to do even if he knows it will cause something to break it's as though he has a compulsion to do it. He has a massive appetite but never seems satisfied & constantly asks for food, even when he can see tea is cooking. I make sure he has a good diet, no additives, colourings etc & have had him food tested for intolerances which he has to soya, wheat, eggs & lentils. He has asthma & ezcema. & wets the bed about once every 3 weeks. He is very physical, playing football, cycling, etc all day, he cannot sit at the table for a full meal without getting up & is fidgety when watching tv/doing homework. Now I'm aware that other people are thinking that he's rude & ill-mannered & hyperactive but nothing we do (positive parenting, talks, strict disipline, diet control) appears to help. So all I can do now is ask for some help, please.
