Okay I am very new at this but am at a loss as to what monster has overcome my 5year old son. I will go to the end of the world to help him, but at this time do not know what he has or how to so I need help. First let me say we are under the care of a counselor. My son has episodes where he can be as nice as can be and then as soon as he gets told something he doesn't like he comes out swinging, biting, kicking, or with the evil words. These words can be anywhere from, "I hate you", "I wish you'd die", "Your a butthead", to downright cursing at me and his Father. He will hit the dog, has broken his toys and threatened to harm himself with a broken toy. He has also threatened to break his toes, fingers ect. My son was not like this a year ago. My husband and I do discipline him, going to bed early, putting his toys in toy jail, grounding, you name it we have done it, but it is as if he is looking at us flipping us off. The counselor believes he has rage issues and referred us to a psychiatrist for possible medication. I can not even get a psychiatrist to make an appointment with my son for four months or longer. I am worried because he starts Kindergarten next week. Like I say I will never ever give up on my child, but cry myself to sleep not knowing how to help. Any words of advice??? Thank you so much!
