First off my DS has HFA so he requires a lot of 'work'. He acts out a lot and it takes a lot of my attention. My friend thinks this is causing my DD to act out as well. Now I do spend A LOT of one on one time with her! In fact for the last couple of months I have been a SAHM so she has had me all day every day while DS was in school up until a couple of weeks ago. DD haas always been like this though she:
is constantly getting into things and making messes. I mean like elmers glue all over the table, climbing on the furniture, pulling all of her clothes out of her closet, refusing to go to bed at night(screaming at the door), asking to eat but not eating meals and complaining all the time about everything form being tired to her tummy hurting to her butt hurting this to the point of me never knowing if she really is hurting or not...
obviously some of this is age related but it seems so out of control. she is corrected with time outs and privilege loss and occasionally a swat on the behind. It is like she is always into something. Even when I have given her things to do. She was sitting with me doing play dough and stuck a pea sized wad up her nose! I'm reading a book to her she tears the page out. I leave the room for a min she dumps a bag of flour in the floor... She is three and a half now and I feel like this should be starting to resolve it's self but it isn't. She seems to be learning nothing! lol. Do you think this has to do with her brother? If so what do I do about it? It's not like she is old enough for a therapist... However she is VERY verbal. She speaks at a 4 year old level (per her ped 6 months ago- I have no idea).
