No problem--my kiddo has disruptive behavior disorder--but he is doing really well with it but he is also 19--so thinking of you 

Quoting MommyRJ:

He's 3.5 & Autistic. Our biggest down fall is his meltdowns & mood swings :(

Thanks :)

Quoting lifeisajoy:

sometimes us mamas need a breather for sure--how old is he?  My son use to do that when we first got him-he was adopted--he does that no more--it is hard--oh I feel for you--

Thinking of you and your child-

Quoting MommyRJ:

I do. I have to put him in his bedroomor he will trash my house if I leave the room, but yes.... Often.

I have NO patience, which is really hard with a SNkid :(

Oh how frustrating!!  Hugs!!! 

Quoting Kalic0:

I really need to do it more! Some days lately have been really challanging.  My amost 6-year-old ASD child was chewing up his food and spitting it out. Seems his molars are coming in.  The younger one who is "normal" is very socially adept and is really learning what sets me off and doing it deliberately to get attention! Gah!!
