My 3yr old DS1 has been one hurdle after another, and nothing has ever been straight forward.
Sick non stop with various things for the first yr and a half of his life. Followed by a significant speech delay. So I can't talk to my son. I explain everything to him, as clear as I can muster.
He has seen drs and Pds, on a waiting list for a few things, no diagnosis yet. They don't think it's Autism, they don't think it's some kind of chromosome disorder. It's just a delay..
I have been trying to potty train him this year, but stopped several times as it seemed he wasn't ready. This time he seemed ready, but once the novelty wore off, it's become almost stressful again. I am going to pursue this time, as it is time to start pushing this.
DH has little to no patience these days. It's like he has given up trying with him. I can understand his frustration, but yelling isn't going to fix the problem. And it's only adding to my anger.
I am reaching a point now where I am over it. And I am tired of seeing other 3yr olds doing things my DS1 simply isn't doing. I know no child is completely the same, and he will eventually get there, but when!? WHEN!
