O.k Here is my situation. I have a 3 yr old son who is shall I say very hard to please. My ds has some very distinguished behavioral problems, sensory issues and assertiveness issues as well. My ds just turned 3 on Nov.6. He is very difficult to discipline. No matter what we have tried, he continues to do what he should not X amount of times a day. These things stream from hitting himself in the head with sever anger when things do not go his way to a full screaming fit in public. I feel that I do not know what to with him anymore. He is "so-called" behind in speech/language skills he is at a 18 mo old level, and is 3. This is all very difficult. I feel that I am constantly disciplining him ALL the time and that it does not faze him. Every 5 min. of the day he is yelling or hitting his little 21mo old brother, I am so FRUSTATED. So we are trying to decide if a Kindercare type preschool environment would be good for him to be aroung other kids his age. To see how other children his age deal with frustration and anger. Maybe he will see that there are other ways to see things. I don't know? I am so tired and worn out by all of this. My doctors tell me to take him off this food and that food, and maybe he needs drugs and this and that. AWW. Well I would not ever give my children drugs no matter what!! We have tried the food elimination thing, and it worked for a while. But to no end we do not have the money to eat the way we would have to to keep my son on the diet. He has to be off of all wheat,dairy,soy,citrus,corn products of all kinds, and refined sugar and flour. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Thanks for listening.
