Our little HM boy!
by J's mommy
I am the mother of a 6 year old beautiful boy who was diagnosed with spd 2 1/2 years ago. He is very intelligent and very sweet. Most of the time I did not know if he was doing normal young kid behavior, or If I was doing bad parenting.
I found my relief when I did some research and read the "Out of sync child". He had been with a private OT for 2 1/2 years and has done well, but I still feel like his anger and emotions are still out of control. We can have a wonderful day and then the next day he is out of control? The anger issues have gotten worse since he has started school, he comes home and acts obnoxious,and is rude.
I was really starting to think it was my discipline. Until, I found this website on the anger issues. It makes me feel like I found the "aha" again. When I discipline my son gets very angry, he'll hit and scream which makes me want to scream... help!
I am worried what my 3 year old is taking in? My son is so smart and funny and happy, but there are a lot of times that our outings as a family (vacation, partys etc. ) are miserable and we don't enjoy them or just don't do them.I could go on and on, but,I would love to hear how others are coping with anger and how to discipline the correct way!
I want him to have confidence in himself.
