Okay, I'm not sure where this fits in with difficult child's issues, but it has me totally frustrated. He is taking food into his room (which is not allowed) and eating large quantities of it and then hiding the trash under his bed. We have told him that if he is hungry is welcome to eat, especially since I know his medications mess with his appetite, but he is still being secrative about it. He is even lying about it. We had a box of nilla cakesters that disappeared. We went to his room to look and found empty boxes and packages of food shoved under his bed and in a trash bag in his room. The box of nilla cakesters only had one package missing. That means he ate 10 cakesters. I don't understand why he is doing this. Has anybody had similar problems?
