Hello, I am new to this forum and am looking for some serious help! My husband and I have a almost 3 year old son and we believe he may have behaviroal problems and would like some direction please. He is in a day care facility and has been since about 14wks, he has a best friend and really doesn't get into much trouble at school (we call it that) any more. Before he could talk he was a biter and would get pink slips for that a few times a week. He speaks very well for his age and is a very fast learner. He remembers EVERYTHING you say around him or tell him but is very selective when using those remembered things.. He has what we call Selective Listening skills, hears only what he wants too... he can hear M&Ms from across the country but you say lets go take a bath right to his face and he can't hear a word you said. We have had him in a swimming class since around age 6mos and for the past few months he has been drinking the water and today, my husband had enough and wants to remove him from the class. Apparently he was drinking the water, the teacher made him get out and sit on the side of the pool and he bent down and started sucking the water off of the pavement/sidewalk around the pool (indoor facility). We tell him over and over and over and over (I could really keep going here) again and he still drinks the water. He does it in the bathtub a lot too so we started giving him showers. We have tried to talk to him face to face, tried scoling him with a louder toned voice and still nothing.. he continues to do it. He is the King of "not otherwise specified" and I know he is a toddler but you can only take so much of it before you just want to pull your hair out piece by piece. Also, today he wants to sleep in his crib because he says he is a baby and that is where babies sleep. He has been in his twin size bed for well over a year now, maybe even 1.5 years.. but for some reason he chose to take his nap in the crib.. (left it up for the next baby). Please help if you can... thank you for listening.
