This past week has been SO hard with difficult child. I don't even do his behavior chart with him since he is so nasty all day/night long. What's the point of having to relive all that? He used to verbally "trigger" people, now he took it up a notch with his brother. He hits and spit on him for NO reason at all!!!! My oldest son is just a little sweet heart, not perfect, but a very enjoyable kid all arround. Just now, he was watching some cartoon, being very quiet and difficult child took a baby cup and slammed it on his brother's face. That left a big red mark. My oldest goes: "there is something wrong with his brain I think". It's pretty bad when a 5 year old even recognize there is a big problem. I am so tired of dealing with that kind of sh*t. We won't be able to see his therapist until the end of August... Even looking at him is hard right now. Honestly, I wish he could go away for a couple weeks. Give everybody a break. husband took difficult child with him to work last week. A whole day without difficult child and just my 2 "normal" kids was just great but way too short. We suspect Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD), but I really don't see it being a reason for hitting and spitting on people, specially when they weren't even interacting at the time. I just wish I could be completely immune to his bad behavior, but it affects me so much emotionally. I feel trapped. And how can he create so much chaos and then expect people to forget and be nice and sweet with him??? I don't know what to do anymore.
