MY 4 YR OLD IS A......dont know a word to describe! HE HAS MAJOR TEMPER TANTRUMS. HE ACTS LIKE HE DOESN'T HAVE TO LISTEN TO AUTHORITY. EXTREMELY HYPER! CAN BE VERY MEAN TO OTHER CHILDREN! I'VE TRIED SPANKING, TAKING THINGS AWAY, TIME OUT! THAT MAKES IT WORSE, HE STARTS SCREAMINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG I CAN'T TOLERATE IT, ITS EASIER TO FINALLY GIVE HIM WHAT HE WANTS THAN ME BECOME OUT OF CONTROL. I HAVE RECENTLY BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH ADHD AND I HAVE A BIT OF A TEMPER. HIS DAD AND HALF BROTHER ALSO HAVE ADHD. NOBODY WANTS TO WATCH HIM EVER!!! HE'S GETTING READY TO START PRE-K AND HIS DAD INSISTS I WAIT ANOTHER YEAR. HE SAID HE'S NOT READY TO GO TO SCHOOL, AND HE'LL PROBABLY BE KICKED OUT! HE ALSO LOVES TO TELL ME I SPANK HIM, IM AFRAID THEY MAY TAKE THAT OUT OF CONTEXT AND START A BIG CADOO OUT OF IT. I USE TO CRY WHEN HE WAS A BIT YOUNGER BC HE JUST DROVE ME FREAKING CRAZY I NOW HAVE A 2 YR OLD GIRL. SHE IS STARTING TO MIMIC SOME OF HIS BEHAVIOR. I'M GOING CRAZYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.

I completely understand. I have a soon to be 8 year. I lived your life. See if you area has an area education agency to help. I'd send him to preschool just to get a break, you need it. See if the local school has a preschool, they maybe able to get some help with some interventions, possibly some special education to help with behaviors. I have a younger daughter who doesn't have the diagnosis but has some behaviors because of watching the other one. I feel your pain. Get sometime for yourself. I know it's hard because you feel like you can't leave him. Mine seems to act better with others than me. Just know you are not alone.
