6 year old having 2 year old tantrums
I will say that I'm glad to hear that my child isn't the only one having extreme meltdowns so I don't feel as alone in this journey.
My son will be going into first grade in the fall and he's still having meltdowns at the littlest things - his teacher asks him to run laps, he can't manipulate his toy accordingly (i.e. it won't do what it's supposed to do), he can't get his carseat buckled. He's been suspended several times for kicking, hitting, spitting and trying to run off school property and has even been kicked out of daycare. With us he kicks and hits but he also throws things at us, says mean things, yells and screams. The director at his new daycare has a degree in special ed and has a lot of experience with kids with SPD but even she thinks he's too old to have tantrums this extreme. We have an appointment with his behavioral psychologist but are still at a loss at to what we can do to lessen these occurrences. Any suggestions?
