Behavioral Issues and feeling shame... ETA
I've been talking to a few moms who also have children who have aggressive and/or violent behavioral issues and b/w us we get it, but even in a group of SN moms, I feel like most don't get "it"
As if it was b/c of our parenting. As if we chose to give our children these genes and brain wiring that causes them to be more aggressive than other children.
I love my son but I know there is some brain miswiring that causes him to be more aggressive than others and its through no fault of my own or his.
There is good news though. There are ways to treat it. Learning new parenting techniques does help a lot. Medication can help a lot. I hope I can find the right mix of treatments for my ds.
Have you been in my shoes? If you haven't, please don't make me (us) feel more alone.
ETA: BTW, the SN groups I am refering to are not any on CM. Some online forums that are local to where I live. I still go there -- even though its incredibly catty -- b/c i find a lot of great, local resources.
