So many of you know my 3yo son is a little bit high needs. He's in therapy for speech & behavior. They will not diagnose him so young, but suggestions of ODD, and disruptive behavior disorder have been used. But on a positive note, I am confident he is improving with age!
So I am looking for suggestions to deal with him waking up grumpy and violent. He is very angry and irritable in the mornings. Nothing pleases him, and when placed back in his room, he destroys things, and the tantrum lasts much longer. My DH has resorted (last resort after months of other tactics) to physical consequences when he hits me or destroys our things but it is a pretty brutal to watch from my stand point. And I would like to figure out how I can better teach him to cope with mornings.
Any pointers from moms who have been through a grumpy phase like this.
