I swear there is something not right with him. The ped says it is just parenting. That I am just not disciplining him right but I have read every parenting book anyone has ever suggested to me and nothing it talks about sounds like my child and the suggestions don't seem to help. The school says psychologist says it is ADHD but the ped won't even consider medicating that until he is 8 and says the shcool is wrong anyway. She insist he is just hard headed and I am not parenting him right. I want to get a second opinion but it would have to be out of pocket since the ped won't refer us. Do you think I need to? Here is what concerns me: He is 6 years old and was in Kindergarten last year. He will be repeating it this year. They said he is just lazy. He refuses to use scissors or write. He says that it hurts his hands but they said he is just stubborn but he seem legitimately distressed when you ask him to write more than just his name or to cut things. Also I am concerned because he just seems so high strung. Everything seems to annoy him. He hates it when people sing- he says it hurts his ears. He hates to hear people eating if he is not also eating. Like if his dad is eating chips in the chair he freaks out because he can hear him crunching and it is annoying. He gets upset if I run out of his favorite cereal or if I change dinner plans. Like if I say we are going to have spaghetti but I realize I am out of noodles so I decide to make chicken instead he refuses to eat. I also find it weird that he doesn't like to go to the park to play. Maybe that is just how he is though. But if I suggest going to the park to play he has a fit that he wants to stay home. He ALWAYS wants to stay home. I could suggest going to get ice cream and he would want to stay home. You have to fight him into the car but once he gets there he is fine most times other times he will continue to make a HUGE scene even after we get there wanting to go back home.
Anyway. Is the ped right? Is it me? Is he just stubborn? Is the school right? Is it ADHD?Or should I get a second opinion...? If it is me what can I do? I feel like I have tried so much already.
