My daughter's behavior
by Melissa B.
this is her sweet look!!
I have two daughters ages 3 and 4 who have been diagnosed with the SPD, verbal dyspraxia, coordination dyspraxia, my 3 year old has an eating disorder and my 4 year old has behavioral disorder.
This is my major question.... my children attend a special needs preschool and they are both very intelligent children(and manipulative). While they are at school my 4 year old is an absolute angel, does nothing wrong, no outbursts,temper tantrums and no crying.
When I talk to the teacher about her behavior at home I feel as if she may think I am crazy, almost like I am a munch hauzen mother. Or else they feel as if I have alot of children (7 total)and that I am probably at the end of my rope and am letting her behavior slip.I can assure you I am not.
My children have the diagnosis from the Department of Pediatrics Center for Development, behavior and genetics. So for that part I know I am not crazy. But I was wondering how do they hold it in for the time that they are at school?
When she comes home off the bus her face is all distorted and scowled,I am unable to accomplish anything out in public after she gets home and she is literally exhausted. She is a very demanding child to begin with who has ripped doors off of hinges, ruined my couch and furniture from her jumping on it,went through 4 cribs as a baby,and rules the house,is very demanding,intrusive,and yet can be sssooo sweet to other people.
I was wondering if anyone had encountered the same problem. Please reply soon!!
