    Has anyone taken their child to a paed because of their behaviour?

    We are going in 2 weeks, i'm not really sure what to expect, or how to show what he can be like? He will probably sure in my lap and refuse to talk

    Ds1 is very spirited. There is no obstacle he doesn't think he can overcome (no matter how many times he hurts himself in the process)! He loves to let everyone know things over and over (repeats himself louder and louder until you repeat it back to him lol. Also at the moment he has got the song "ohhhh sometimes... I get a good feeling yeah" in his
    Mind and feels it must be yelled out as loud as he can yell over and over and over and over and just shiz and giggles over. I love him so much no matter how grey I'm getting

    Yes, mine has an anxiety disorder and falls on the autism spectrum. She was only diagnosed during Prep.

    Oh yes indeedy do - we've been to a paed, we've been to a child psych as well.

    When you go to a GOOD paed, they will ask a bucket load of questions of you - they observe the child but they know quite well that a child isnt going to be able to answer questions

    We are seeing a paed who specialises in behaviour and does developmental and autism assessments, so I hope she can help.

    Should I write a list of his odd behaviours, or just go with it. They requested medical and school records, but he's 3, so there isnt really anything that will help I dont think

    I am a bit stuck on whether my DS is spirited or just plain old defiant and aggressive. Not that it really matters, but I would like to be able to label is behaviour sometimes...not sure why, just for my own sake!

    He gets into these manic kind of phases where he will run around and bang into people, mostly other kids but sometimes me or another adult, he will ram kids from infront or behind knocking them over, push, punch, hit, kick, throw things, yell in kids faces, use intimidating body language. He runs around like a crazy person shaking his head side to side and shriek at the top of his lungs just to freak other kids out or to cause some mayhem.

    The other day we were at a indoor playground and he was feral, fighting with his friends, yelling in kid faces until they cry, he enjoys it. I marched over the little fenced play area he was misbehaving in, while breastfeeding my DD, boob out the top of my singlet (classy!) and hauled him off the other child by one arm, plonked him firmly on his bottom and gave him a talking to. As I walked away the table of strangers where commenting "wow, so much pushign and shoving, that ones gong to be a boxer for sure"

    More like a cage fighter. And also a member of Crusty Demons.

    He just seems manic when he is like that, nothing I say or do seems to get through to him other than to go home, but that doesn't do anything long term he will just be exactly the same next time. He is only 2.5 but I haven't seen another child like him. He is not full on all the time, will watch TV for ages if allowed, can be lovely and quiet on occasion. He is very defiant, rude (NO, GO AWAY) etc, no self control.

    Could there be a bigger issue?

    Well I'm at home with my spirited 4 year old who has a bacterial respiratory infection and yesterday had a nasty asthma attack. He is now on mega steroids (to get his asthma under control) and is bouncing off the walls. He has lost nearly 3 kilos in a month, in my opinion, just from his non stop calorie burning, I didn't even know he caught a virus or that it had gotten worse because a)he always has a runny nose and b)he did not slow down AT ALL! He keeps coming home from school without eating his lunch, the teacher said she can't pin him down long enough.. So I'm keeping him home to supposedly rest and recoup.. So far he has escaped the house to visit the old lady next door, flooded the bathroom while showering by sticking a flannel over the drain.. and converted the entire loungeroom into a giant cubby house. I can't wait till he goes back to school.

    Mine refused to eat at school for over 2 years. I would give her porridge, toast, banana, and a hot chocolate for breakfast, then a selection of fuit, veg and cheese for afternoon, but I would let her eat the banana in the car on the way to school and give her an apple in the car on the way home to reduce the amount of time without food. I also supplied the school with Ensure so that was on offer.

    DS1 has times when he does all you've described too. But other days he is an absolute angel. I too am not sure if he's spirited or there's a bigger issue. It's stressful and embarrassing when they do that isn't it?
