Me 41, single mom to dd 4/2001 and ds 7/17/2010
Ior as crunchy as I am with our lifestyle (CD, attachment parenting, cosleeping, recycling, etc.) I have been horribly lax on our diet.
Please see my Community Profile! about Asperger's Syndrome!
When something does not go exactly his way he freaks out, ranging anywhere from throwing himself on the floor kicking and screaming to hitting/biting (usually directed at me or his brother, he's never done this to anyone else) but going as far as damaging stuff. One day I poured him the wrong flavor of juice and he ran screaming into his bedroom and tore all the posters off his wall, then tore them into pieces and then sat crying on his bed saying he didn't know why he did it. And the triggers are most times ridiculous (in my mind) things, such as he missed the first two minutes of a TV show. He does not show aggressive behavior to other kids (though he likes to be physical with them, like wrestling and hugging). But I have no clue how to handle this behavior.
I have always thought that he was just being a typical boy, but I've started questioning myself because of what other moms have commented on. Every time I tell any of the other moms in my mothers groups about these meltdowns they all say the same thing- Have you had him tested? He sounds special needs. This behavior has been going on for as long as I can remember, so it isn't anything new.
