Mr 3.5 is doing my head in! I know every child is different but he is just too much! I don't know what else I can try. My eldest hasn't always been a breeze but I've just never experienced anything like Mr 3.5 he is different. No matter how many times I say something in how many different ways, tones, with hand held guidance, directly etc he always needs to be told again, every time. If I want him to stop doing something I can't just ask nicely or give a warning. I literally have to give short, sharp, instructions eg. Stop! Sit! Etc. if I try to simply, in 5 words explain what I want or why he can't do something he will either cry or just look around and midway through me talking cut me off and say OK. I'm sick of people saying he is normal cause he isn't, there is something not right. It's not it's a boy thing, there are tonnes of kids I know that are boys and whilst, yes, boys are a different game he's different again. I'm over not enjoying him. It's like he can't retain the information he's being taught. I'm so depressed and stressed and I just don't even know what to do. Apart from cry!

If you have gut feeling push to get him tested. She Dr ask for a referral to pead.

Hi definately push for a referral, I too knew it wasnt a boy thing! I'm in early stages of my son being assessed. I know how desperate you feel, its a relief to have the ball rolling. At this stage he has adhd so please get help. I hated being around my son too &I knew his poor mind was warn out too & he constantly defied me. Its better than before but we have a long way to go but now I have a pediatrican who specialises in behavioural issues and a Psychologist as well behind me I feel more in control. Push for help!
