I'm fairly well used to Brownie's oppositional behaviors, defiance, general uncooperativeness--but God, this latest...he's done it before, but now it seems worse. In the past, a correction or limit could be met with "you think I'm stupid." Now, not only does he say "you think I'm an idiot" it's "CALL ME AN IDIOT! SAY I'M AN IDIOT! SAY IT!" usually while crying, sometimes accompanied by punching himself in the head or banging his head on the floor. This all happened moments ago when he wanted to use the computer and I said no (because *I'M* using the computer). I think I should call the county mental health office for help, but I'm nervous...I have this irrational? fear that the men in white coats will come to get him, or he'll go on some "dangerous child" registry...right now he's screaming on the floor like a two-year-old because he can't have candy for breakfast. I'm so tired of this.
