Foster Son is Very Very angry I need advice from someone with experience
Good afternoon Ladies,
Long story short(i hope) I have 2 bio Sons and a sib. Group 2year old little Girl who is doing great, and a 3year old little guy(foster to adopt).I am having trouble with my foster son. He can be fun loving and a Happy dude when he is getting his way. But and here is a big BUT when he gets a time out or in trouble or told to do something he does not want to do he will punch the walls do an all out body thrashing and scream at the top of his lungs either NO NO NO over and over or just scream. We have to do time outs as that is DCS policy for punishment and I am not here to talk about if spankings are OK or not... What I would like to know is what are other ideas for me to get this little guy under control. As I said he is in foster care system so who knows what he has been around. I know there is some violence at his bio-home. We have tried positive reinforcement like stickers and treats. I got him a squishy ball to take his anger out on(he broke it) He is currently in counselling but I really want to know from you ladies what experiences you have had and what has worked for you. PLEASE HELP!
Thanks so Much
