Husband not understanding
My 7 yr old has slight SPD issues. We really just understood this early last year. My son is very smart...taught himself to read at 4. Ever since he was a baby, it has been hard to know how to handle situations that arise.
When I read "out of Sync" book, I couldn't believe how it explained some of the issues my son had. He is very sensitive to pain, sound, and smells. He is overally fearful of new things, even though he has gotten better over the years. He cries very easily and is very hard on himself. He thinks he is dumb or a bad kid etc. He is very smart and loving.
My husband is a very wonderful man. He tries to understand our son but he just cannot and ends up getting mad. He has called him a baby when our son is afraid to do something or when he cries at everything! I have tried to share with my husband about SPD. He is strict and expects our son to obey. I do too, of course! But, anyone can see that our son is not disobeying but is fearful or over emotional at times. My husband thinks I am against him and the way he disciplines etc.
I don't know what to do! Has anyone experienced your husband not understanding? And your child coming between you and your husband? I love my husband dearly, but I am at a cross road!
