I thought I'd post at this board, since I think all of you mommas probably know what I am feeling right now.
A little background. DS is 2 and have very limited speech. He is in ST, but I am not thrilled with it. He is just starting to repeat words. We also think he has some sensory issues, as he is so rough with kids for no reason. He has an OT eval scheduled for 4/1. And finally, he has been having seizure like fits, where he looses control of his body, falls down and shakes. He is scheduled for an MRI and and EEG next month.
Our city had a Kite Day in the park today and we went as a family (DH, DS and I). DS was having a ball, and so was DH - who usually has to be dragged to things like this. We ate lunch, played on the playground and then attempted to fly a kite. Ds had a blast chasng me around as I tried to fly a kite. And then he ran over to another kid and grabbed his shirt for no reason. I apologized and redirected him. DS then ran over to a little girl, around 18 mos) and just pulled her hair so hard. She was crying, I am pulling DS off of her, her mom is chastising him, I am saying sorry. Finally, I get DS away from her, and we leave the park. During the long walk to my car, I still hear the little girl crying. DS is clueless - he is still having a fun day at the park. I held on until I got in the car and then I just started crying. I cried all the way home. Why does he do this? What is wrong with my son? I can never enjoy playgroups or anything, wondering when he is going to attack another child.
On top of this, his teacher sent home a note yesterday that he was being aggressive at school (he goes to Montessorui daycare 3 days per week) and she wants to schedule a conference.
What can I do about this unprovoked "aggression"? I am not going to hit him. I redirect, apologize, nothing works!
Thanks for letting me vent that all out.
