I have a 5 yr old son. He can be so loving and sweet, and within seconds, he'll change into this "monster". I'm at my wits end. He's in Kindergarten now and only been in school for 3 months? i guess. The principal has called twice, i've talked with the teacher several times. He won't quit hitting other kids! He was barely in school for 2 weeks, and he punched another student in the nose. Then about a month ago, he hit a boy that was already in trouble and choked 3 girls at recess-all in the same day-. And then today -he hit a girl and an older student. He's being tested through the school for adhd. I asked how it was coming along today and they said "they're working on it" Every day i have trouble with him and his tantrums. He cusses me, tells me he hates me, hits me, Tells me that i will NOT tell him what to do.

[deep breath] I love my son so much! Just hurts when he's so hateful and mean. We discipline him as much as we can without going overboard. Daddy does more damage than Mommy- assuming thats usually the case with most families. He just laughs at me. Doesn't seem to phase him a bit.

When he's tired, wow, he can get such a burst of energy like i have never seen. He'll run around, screaming and hollering, driving everyone nuts.

The principal had mentioned that they dont usually "kick kindergartners out" .... i really hope it doesn't come to that before the results come back to me. I dont know what to do anymore. We try and try and try to explain things to him but it just doesn't sink in. He does what he wants, when we aren't around it seems. Authority doesn't seem to make it any better either.

I'm tired of having anxiety attacks over him. I'm sick most of the time because i can't deal with his behavior.

Honey, get him to his pediatrician if the school is not working fast enough- and them get yourself into a therapist- i would bet you are depressed from feeling like a bad parent. I have a doughter with ADHD and a nephew with it also-whom lives next door and I babysit for- as a rule girls try hard not to be naughty and boys are rule breakers. Could b ehe cant handle the way he is feeling inside his head and other kids won't play with him. My daughter went through some stuff in kindergarten and came home everyday crying becase noone would play with her. That was when her teacher and I had a long chat-wonderful woman- noone would play with her becase she couldn't concentrate long enough to play with them before moving onto something else.

yeah, i definitely feel like a bad parent most of the time. He went all day today without hitting anyone at school, and then 5 mins before the bell rang, he hit a girl. We just taped his hands closed for about an hour to kinda teach him what his hands are used for besides hitting. He just says, that so and so wont leave me alone. Therapy would probably definitely help, along with some kind of anxiety medication. His kindergarten teacher is wonderful as well. Its her first year teaching. Well lets see what tomorrow brings...

Friday, my son got sent home from school early because he hit, yet again, another girl. And he misses recess for 5 days. Hopefully he'll learn by the time 5 days is up.
