Ok heres the deal..my son thorws everything out of proportion! It seems most of the time hes so full of drama it aggitates me to death. I try real hard to blow it off but sometimes it will just get on my nerves. I know he cant help it and i know i should be suppotive but come on! Hes continually having meltdowns over nothing! How many of you moms deal with this on a daily bases? And what do you do to deal with it?

What do you mean by he cannot help it?  Is he special needs?  Or just really young?  My son is two and very rarely has meltdowns.  I try not to let it get to that point.  What causes his meltdowns?

How old is he? My son is almost 6 nown but has been super dramatic his whole life. It is just his personality. We have been consistent in punishments and rewards and he went to a special preschool for a couple years and this has all helped him to learn to control his emotions before he gets out of control. We went from several meltdowns a day to one or two a week and those usually happen when he is hungry or tired. Just be consistent.

How old is your son?  What does he say about his behaviour when you talk to him about it?  Have you talked to his doctor about it?

Gotcha!  Does he see a therapist or is he in any therapies for this?  

My son also has high functioning autism and sometimes has these same types of behaviors.  I spend a lot of time talking with his teachers and dealing with meltdowns at home especially over homework.  He's almost 13.

You might also want to check out the Autism: Support Across the Spectrum group here.  I've gotten a lot of support there.

Oh okay, I wish I had some real advice to offer you, but I dont.  Just remember you are a great mom and doing everything you can.  Is there a way you can distract him or devert his attention somewhere else?
