    You poor things. My only thought is to try get him into the pediatrician earlier if possible - perhaps ring and tell the receptionist his behavior is escalating and ask if you can go on a cancellation list to try and get in sooner.

    Or if that's no good your community nurse may know some behavior management programs in your area to get some interim help.

    I have a spirited boy who loves his routine so I can begin to imagine what you are going through, find some extra patience if you can and good luck.

    Just wanted to say that if you want an appointment sooner perhaps look into seeing a behavioural psychologist instead? I tried for ages to get in with a paed with no luck. It was only a 2 week wait to get in and see the psych though.

    He sounds IDENTICAL to my son (4 years old), except for the eye contact...my son makes a lot of eye contact. Prior to mid-year I just assumed he was very spirited/independent. I have read "Raising your spirited child" and it's the most perfect description of my son. However, I have booked an appointment with a child psychologist for September, because I am noticing a lot of other behavioural issues lately and it's all worsening a great deal. It could be based on family changes, but I would like to speak to a psychologist either way.

    Good luck - I know how incredibly draining/exhausting it can be

    What I was wanting to contribute before OP was that my DD1 exhibited some of these behaviours from 18 months but grew out of them by 5 (after her first year of school). I also question whether she grew out of the behaviour or taught herself to behave how she perceived others wanted her to.
    Hope you can get some answers.

    Thank you everyone. I'm new all this stuff! No idea what to do, I have been looking on google for a child behavioural psychologist in the Brisbane/Gold Coast area. Will I need a referral for an appointment?

    Like you Witwicky I have always thought DS1 was a little quirky/spirited. But it just seems to getting worse. He has never had a care free type of personality. He is really highly strung.

    We have booked DS1 to a place called Kooky Kids Clinic, in 3 weeks time. The GP gave us a referral today for this place. They have a multidisciplinary board at the clinic aswell. He is booked in with a child psychologist. Thanks everyone for your suggestions
