  • He could have autism, a mild form such as asbergers, my son would do some similar behaviors, if he has issues with personal space , meaning invading anothers, like up in there face, or not staring in your face when you talk to them directly, those are syptoms. if he also have sensitivy issues , with sounds even though hes loud, or hot cold, it could be possible, if he has it , than be prepared for a hectic journey, with lots of explaining to everyone in the family, and believe it or not, my son who is now almost ten, is way different, but when he was small absolutely a different story, hang in there, and love will find a soultion. I pray all goes well with this child, and you find the answers you seek

  • Sounds to me like this child needs Parents who give a damn, not meds or a "diagnosis"......if they are laughing when he screams or spits in their faces. The dark spots under his eyes could mean that he needs more sleep, if they don't inforce behavior, why would they inforce bedtime, etc. If he had a real problem, then he wouldn't be able to behave appropriately at school, but he does, because the expectations and punishments are consistent. The parents are the problem, not the child.
