You have very valid concerns, especially if your child's behavior problems or whatever have been going on this long. My son was diagnosed ADHD this year shortly before he turned five. Before the diagnosis though, we tried out preschool, and he was only allowed there for a month and a half before they grew tired of dealing with him. My advice to you is this....if you are truly concerned, speak to your pediatrician and ask them for a referral to a Behavioral Institute or place where they can assess your son for any issues. You didn't specify what the problems were, but you sound about as exhausted and overwhelmed as I have been feeling for the last few years. If your son is having delays of some kind then I would suggest getting him assessed through a state program to see if he qualifies. Good luck, and I hope you find the help you need for you and your son!
