My name is Tamara. I'm a 35 y.o. stay at home mom to Braedon (7), Connor (5), and Noah (2). I'm struggling really hard to think of Braedon as a difficult child. More like Devil's spawn. I am really at my wit's end with him. I just plain do not like him most of the time. He has never been diagnosis, but he has every marker for ODD. He has been difficult since he was born, so this is nothing he's going to simply "grow out of". My DS Connor (5) has autistic spectrum disorder. He is atypical in that he is very social and affectionate, but is clueless to boundaries or appropriate behavior. He also mimicks those around him, good or bad. My DS Noah (2) is in EI for speech and Occupational Therapist (OT). He's getting aggressive like his older brother, so I've watching him closely. My dog got hit by a car last night and we had to put her to sleep, and my father in law is dying in the hospital. I am really to have a melt down. Thanks for letting me vent!!!
