What did I do wrong?
My son is 5 years old and has had early intervention for speech and Occupational Therapy for SPD. He has come a long long way, but one of the main issues we still deal with is his anger. The problem is nothing seems to work as a disciplinary measure.
Does anyone out there have a child that can't seem to remember why he was so mad or got in trouble? The threat of a toy being taken away, going to his room, etc. never seems to stick in his mind as a possible repercussion for bad behavior. So far he has not taken his anger out on his little sister or classmates, rather it is the screaming, throwing things, knocking things over, spitting, kicking, stripping off of his clothes that he does. He also does attempt to hit/kick my husband and me.
We worry so much about him eventually hurting another adult or child and of course being labeled a disciplinary problem when he starts kindergarten next year. I am just curious to know if anyone else experiences this with their child with SPD or if I need to investigate further into some kind of an anger disorder. His not remembering what he did, why he was so angry, not caring about what he did concerns us. Thanks!
