hello! I just stumbled across this site in hopes to find comfort or anyone else in a similar situation with advice. My son is 5 years old, almost 6. He has always been active, happy, smart, alert, and fun to be around. He attended daycare for years with no major issues. He was one of the rougher boys in his class, but the teachers always confirmed it was typical and the other boys in the class acted the same and we had nothing to worry about. We always have issues in settings like parties where he acts almost as if he gets over stimulated & acts out. Purposely jumps on others etc in a ball put, pushes others in a jumping castle. No reason behind it, almost like he gets too excited. Kindergarten started two months ago, my son was very excited to go but two days into school his teacher called us to let us know they noticed he was aggressive towards other kids during recess. This has continued for two months now and we are being updated daily that he is very impulsive and will push, hit, slap, others if he becomes frustrated. He is very competitive & will cheat in games in order to win. If he loses, he will throw things & have a tantrum. Currently, he sits alone & during story time has his own chair to sit at to prevent him from acting out towards other kids. He is very obsessive with his age, and wants to be the oldest, tallest, biggest etc. His teacher is being very supportive and at first suggested this was just adjustment period. But, now we are into month #2. He also is not listening well and being rude sometimes to the teachers who being him in from recess for being hands on. Since school started we have also noticed he is acting on impulse at home too. He has slapped me, kicked, punched towards me if he is angry or being disaplined. He tells us he cannot control it and he is just bad, this breaks my heart. Tonight as an example, I was doing up his jacket and at his level and because I told him he couldn't chase the dog around the yard & make him bark he slapped me across the face. We took him to his Pediatrician who suggested we fill out a questionnaire for ADHD as well as his teacher. She didn't think he has it but said this would be step one. I saw his teachers replies, and it does look like he has it but mostly only on the impulse level. The dr has not contacted us back yet but she will this week to let us know her suggestion on if we should see a child phycologist or occupational therapist. It's starting to get so bad that our weekend family time is being ruined by bad behaviour, impulse etc.. Does this sound like ADHD? Or anything else?
