*** Edit ***Special needs is a bunch of crap ! How do you know if your 5 yr old has a special need ?
I would like to thank those of you who have replied sincerely and nicely . I edited the original title in the hopes of mothers reading the post. ( As most of us know , if your title isn't a drama starter it goes unseen That was proven , yet again , with my original post ) I was by no means calling any of you termites. Simply saying that the replies come out of the woodwork when it's a drama starting title and subject .
I do know that MC isn't a support group . I wanted to stay Anon because of certain family members here . It isn't something I want to discuss with those certain family members .
*Apparently the only way any mothers here will actually answer you is if you degrade the special needs subject. I was here asking a sincere question from mothers of special needs children. Did any of you answer. NO! But if I were to say special needs was a bunch of crap you would have all come out of the woodwork like termites! *
My 5 yr old is very smart. He missed the cutoff for kindergarten . I was already teaching him at home. But since he will not be able to go to kindergarten until next school year I have been making sure to teach him at home .
Sometimes I think part of his issues are because he is around Mom and Dad too much.
Other times I wonder if there is something else going on .
He is VERY HYPER . He has trouble concentrating on one single thing , but only if asked to do so. He can concentrate on things he WANTS to concentrate on .
He will go from one extreme to another in a heartbeat. Mostly happens when he his asked something that wasn't already in his line of thought . He will freak out so badly it's like he's gone crazy for those few minutes.
I made the mistake one time of saying he was acting like a maniac . Well now if he gets all upset he will tell his Dad or myself that he has the *maniacs* and can't calm down.
I am at a loss .
