I have a five year old son who is completely out of control. I hate to admit this but there are times I seriously either want to send him away forever or just run away myself. I'm exhausted. So is my husband. We feel like we've tried everything and nothing is working. Just a little background about Cooper. He was a very good baby. He never fussed, never had colic, nothing of that nature. When he was a toddler he was sweet and loving. He was very well behaved. He was an angel. He went to preschool and he turned into a horrible behaving child. We thought just mild ADD or something. We seen the school psychologist who said that he had a behavioral issue due to immaturity. He got better for a while. Then he turned 5 and literally all craziness broke loose. There has been a few things that has happened..the worst being he decided one morning not to wake us and leave our home. He got into his toy jeep and started going down the road (a main road). We have alarms on all of our door inside and outside doors. He constantly hits or throws things at us. He thinks that is funny. He steals food (anything with sugar he steals). He wont go to bed at night, he kicks us, aruges with us, refuses to do what he's asked to, he's lately been obsessed with things like transformers, power rangers, things of that nature. He also has a rough time in school. I have since taken him back to the therapists office. She says he has anger issues. Spanking (which I totally disagree with but was willing to try) doesn't work, timeout doesn't work, taking toys away doesn't work, taking tv away doesn't work...NOTHING works. He's very sensetive about being called a baby, or people yelling at him. So I'm careful with that. I'm seriously lost. Sometimes i think there is not any hope. I also wanted to add C is extremely smart. He is working on reading, he knows everything practically about dinosaurs, he is also working on learning other languages.
