Ok I need some help here, I need some ideas of how to help him while he is having a major meltdown.
His meltdowns are ones that will start off with small and grow very fast into a full blown meltdown. Where he is trying to hurt myself or my husband. We don't know how to help him. If we hold him down he head butts us, if we let him go he goes after his brother or one of us.
Some background we just moved to a new state and have now been in our home for about 2 months, he has been out of OT and Speech for now 3 or 4 months. Life has been stressful for him and I feel so very bad. We did enroll him in karate to help but he just doesn't know how to channel his anger.
We are at a total loss, I don't want to scare him and be afraid that someone is going to call the police on us because he is screaming so very loud (we have had the police called on us before) but I just don't know how to help him anymore.
Today we went a different way into our neighborhood since two cars were blocking the entrance and he did not like that and went full force on us. Ended up carrying him in the house while he screamed and tried to bit me.
Does this happen to anyone else? What have you done and what has worked?
