(Carrollton, GA USA)
My son just turned 7 years old. Right before he turned 2, he started having these terrible tantrums for no reason. Once he got set off, we could not stop him. We would place him in his crib (if we were at home) and he would cry and thrash around for an hour sometimes. Then, he would be calm and relaxed. Once, my husband & I even sat outside an ER debating about taking him inside. We just knew something was seriously wrong with our child. When I asked the pediatrician about it, she simply asked, "Do you feel he is a threat to you or to others?" When we told her no, she just told us there was nothing she could do and he would grow out of it. So, for years, we have struggled to understand our son. We know know about SPD.
