My DS seems to be constantly saying bad things about himself...."i'm stupid, you don't love me, you hate me, I am dumb, I want to die."
I've done some reading on this, and I know at this age they can be VERY critical of themselves. I am constantly telling him how wonderful he is, how much I love him, and how smart he is. He hears it from everyone around him. BUt he won't stop with this kind of talk. It's really starting to get to me....the negativity is getting under my skin and I am starting to feel like shit.
ARe you dealing with this....how do you handle it? I am at my wits end with this. As there are times he will be fine, saying he is smart, or asking "am I smart?!" with a smile on his face. He is generally a very happy, giving, caring child. So this back and forth is drving me crazy. HELP!!!
