Hi my name is Lisa... First I would like to say how happy I am at finding this website. My daughter is almost four and I have no idea how to parent her anymore. I had her evaluated 3 months ago through the school district and they put her in an afternoon placement program for kids with disabilities. They never really told me what was wrong with her. I am told she is extremely intelligent but she is agressive towards her peers and adults. She bites and scratches herself. She is extremely impulsive and cannot control her anger at all. She is easily frustrated. She is not an easy kid by any means and never has been. My husband and I seperated before she was one and remain in open communication about her problems but he feels nothing is wrong with her that she is just being bad. I am exhausted!! Parenting should not be this hard! I took her out of one daycare because of the problems thinking that a different enviroment would help but nope. Right now she is in daycare in the morning and goes to the special school in the afternoon. She does great with the special school but the same problems in the daycare as the first one. They sat me down and said something has to be done or she is going to have to leave. They were very supportive and understanding. They felt like they were not capable or educated enough to deal with her type of behaviors. They said they will keep her in if I can get a stand in teacher more qualified to deal with her behaviors. So before the school board I go again. I think I am starting to realize that something is going on and that it is not my parenting skills. I have an appointment with a highly recommended Developmental Pediatrician in August. I have always felt that something was wrong but could never believe that maybe she would need medicine. There are so many judgments about kids on medicine and I felt like I would let my daughter down if I put her on medicine. Please if anybody has any insight as to what is going on with my daughter I would appreciate it so much!!
