  • It sounds like school is not a good place for him. Since they are already suggesting he repeat, you could go ahead and take him out.

    Have him sit down to pee. Get things to put in toilet for him to aim at. Have him clean up missed pee. Problem solve.

    You are going to have a difficult road ahead of you. You need to learn all the good parenting skills you can from books. classes, college courses, conferences, support groups, ect. I have a son that has an IQ of 80 and bipolar disorder. We made it, he is an adult and we had no problems with the police, hospitalizations, or pregnant girls! That's great with bipolar disorder.

    Mothering.com has discussion boards that include parenting. At the top of each one they have resources and list good books for different age kids. Your son is kind of in the middle of the ages I know the most about.

    It sounds like your son needs to see a developmental specialist MD.

  • I would defiantly take him to the psychologist and see if they can help. Maybe there is something bothering him that he wont tell you but may tell to someone who he thinks is trying to help him.

  • I am curious what the doctor will say, I have a nephew with some of the things you mentioned and he was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, I think he might have been too young for Kindergarten,,,IDK keep us posted, and good luck!

  • My son used to pee everywhere too. I used fruit loops to give him something to aim at. I would definatley take him to talk to someone, even to just find out what is going through his head when he exhibits those behaviors.
