I am new on here, have been reading the posts for a while now. My difficult child is 11, he was diagnosed as ADHD and ODD in 2003, and added depression in 2007, and Psychosis in June of 2009. We live in a small town with very little resources available locally, he was hospitalized for 7 days during the summer. We drove an hour each way for visitation, he was sedated and doesn't even remember that we were there. We had an ARD at his school last week in which they agreed to place him in a Behavior Modification program which he started today. We recieved a call from the school around 9:30 this morning to come and pick him up, he had become aggressive to the staff when they tried to correct one of his papers. He was hitting and fighting the teachers after they had to physically restrain him due to hitting his head on the walls. They are going to give him another chance tomorrow, but if he becomes violent again he will be expelled. Not sure where we go from here. I know that he has problems, but it seems like he uses his disability to get his way, he is very manipulative. I am pregnant and I am afraid that he is going to hurt the baby when I have it. I have another child, easy child, 8 f, he is aggressive towards her, but very remorseful when he does hurt her. He is very protective over her, but the fear that he will lose his temper and hurt her is always there. My husband, my kids stepdad, is paranoid schitzophrenic and bipolar. He has 4 girls that only come visit when my difficult child is not home. The girls don't understand my son and prefer not to be around him, it hurts us all that we don't get the opportunity to be a family, but I can't put them in danger. My sons father has undiagnosed mental problems, but he relinquished his rights in 2003 and has no contact. My daughters father has been in my sons life since he was 1, we divorced in 2007, both kids have visitation with him but my son doesn't get along with his step-kids and doesn't want to go for visitation anymore. My husband has been a God-send in how he helps me with my son, but he is scared to death that our child is going to be harmed by him. Any advice on how to deal with my child?
