I am new to this site as of today. It was the first page that came up when I typed in the Google box, "parents with children+ADHD." We have a 4 yr. old boy and we believe he has ADHD. We are waiting for the hospital to give us an appointment to see a specialist. Until then, we just pray. I'm here today because I'm so frustrated with my child. I used to be able to walk away from him until I could get it together. I'm finding I can't do it anymore. He is such a good boy and so loving....but these outbursts and disobedience is intolerable. I blew up today because he was freshly out of his bath. I sat down to trim his fingernails and he couldn't sit still for 10 seconds. I told him if he didn't let me finish, I would send him straight to bed. His body immediatly reacted as he was laying down and kicked me in the breast. I was in so much pain I just sent him to his room and let his dad dress him. I walked away in tears and in pain. My son later came to me and hugged me as he apologized for hurting me. Something is seriously wrong with this picture. I am convinced that he has no control over his emotions and behaviour. I don't know what to do. It's not his fault, yet I find myself depressed over the fact that I can't help him. Can anyone help me?
