My eight year old son has SPD and has very violent meltdowns where he attacks me. I am not sure how to deal with these and whether to punish him or not.
He never learns from consequences as loses all control when angry. He is very sorry afterwards and feels bad and can self harm. He says he doesn't want to do it but can't control it. If I do nothing then I am giving him the green light to hurt me.
What do I do? I live alone and fear he will seriously hurt me. Val
