My son has just been beyond words. He has some sensory issues, which I know contribute to his behavior. We are learning to take care of those needs, and I do try to be more understanding with him. But, I'm at the end of my rope. The tantrums are horrible, he just won't talk (also something we're working with a specialist on) and I feel like he would just be better off if someone else were raising him.
It sounds horrible I know. I really hit rock bottom today when I couldn't figure out what he wanted, so he ran into his room and slammed the door. I thought I'd give him some time to cool down and when he got quiet I went in to talk to him. Instead of cooling down he'd taken his poop and smeared it all over. This is a common thing for us. It doesn't matter what I do or tell him. We've taped diapers on, begged him to use the potty, put them on backwards, rewards for not doing things like that, you name it. We rent an apartment and as of today his carpet is ruined. I scrubbed for hours and there is just no saving it.
I can't do this anymore. I can't. I cried for 2 hours today thinking of how we had to start all over again tomorrow. Someone else has to be at this point with me right? Are you here too? I need some support from like minded mamas!

He wont be better off with someone else raising him. You don't give up on your child no matter what. I know its difficult...maybe you can get some extra help so you can have a break now and then. You don't want someone else taking over-they may not be as patient with him and something disastrous could happen.
