My 6 yr old difficult child was admitted for inpatient in psychiatric hospital Friday. psychiatrist is out of the country and recommended via e-mail. We are in the middle of a medication wash and he has attacked kids at daycare, running from the building etc. He called us 2 times Friday night wanting to come home (he has never been away from us but 3 nights in his life). We visited Saturday, he never called us at night and he never called today (we called him) - seemed to be doing ok. He is the youngest there. I am scared for safety (never having gone through this). He is at a highly respected pediatric facility. We meet with the team tomorrow. I am afraid that this will scar him, yet I know he needs help, I am shocked that he is not constantly calling (as he has high anxiety when Mom & Dad are not around). husband and I are scared to death and so sad for him. What shouldwe expect from this?
