Hello everyone. Before I start my rambling on as usual,I wanted to thank everyone here! Also,my son is almost 6, so I will have to move over to General Parenting in a month. Not only is he growing older, I will miss everyone here-although most of you post there as well . OK, lets start how he's been acting. He is still hard to get moving,very talkative (although his speech is still hard to understand,yes still in speech.)He does not bite himself,but still gets angry,slams doors,says he hates us,makes mean threats to us like" He want to hit us" , "he doesn't care if we get hurt or sick". He also spits on us and will throw his toys/misc on occasion when mad. Like I mentioned before, when someone accidentally bumps into him, he will bump us or hit us yelling we shouldn't have done that to him! That we did it on purpose,when we tell him it was an accident, he calls us lier's. He is very demanding ( i know all kids can be,but he does not give it up) and when he does this my father and him but heads! In school he keeps getting in trouble for talking, or one time he kept "rolling" around on his mat during nap time. He got his Show and Tell taken a way after these two days, (as i told him he could not go out and play or use the computer for getting in trouble at school-follow up at home too.His teachers keep asking me to do so,I agreed. He said something mean about the teacher ( cant remember what he told me now) but he still seems angry,and doesn't want to listen. He does have some times where he is a whole other child,helps me with dishes, sits on my lap,when I am reading to him,offers his stuff or food to us.Its amazing! OK,took him to the Dr Tues for a severe cough that kept him up all night. Dr said allergy/maybe end of a cold/throat infection. Gave him a Cough prescription with Codine in it. Wow,all that day before and after the codene he was so sweet! The next morning,sweet,By the after noon,I guess he was immune to the Codine, cuz his old self was back. Anyway,Plan B. I have always allowed my kids to give/make/alter etc their decisions. I am trying to do so even more with my son. I will ask him" How do you feel about.."Let him reply, and I ask him" what do you think will help" etc. I know its a slow process, and they have to learn from their own mistakes or achievements for the most part. Is this the best way, do I keep at this plan? I think you mentioned it to me before. I made a coment to his pediatrician Dr again about his attitude and that his teachers would enjoy the quite time from the codine because at times he is a handful. He just gave me a "sarcastic look". He's a great Dr, but, you all are right, for the issues I'm having, he just doesn't understand or believe me. I'm going to really put extra strength into helping my son,and meanwhile get a job,and gather all I can until get insurance for someone else to see him.The school said they do not see a problems with him- yet. Hes just more talkative and behind on a few things. Sorry so long!!!!
