Ok. So I've posted before about my son't bad behavior. But its getting way worse! Instead of just hitting, kicking, and spitting on me, he has resorted to ripping (yes, ripping!) my hair out whenever I ask him to do something, try to get him dressed, cleaned, pretty much everything.
I have tried being nice, I've tried spanking, time-outs, telling him that its not okay to do those kinds of things because of the obvious reasons, etc. But it just keeps getting worse. And its all directed to me. He doesn't do it to anyone else.
I know its because he wants a rise out of me. And I have tried to just let it go. But the more I ignore this behavior, it gets worse.
I have my hair pretty short, and try to keep it up, but he finds a way to get to it. Its to the point where when I shower my hair falls out in clumps. I can't continue to try to keep my cool, because this behavior is only getting worse. I'm nervous because he goes to pre-k next year. What will happen if he does this to his teacher or a little girl? I could really use some advice from moms who've been through this.
I show him affection and always let him know how much I love him and that he's 'momma's baby'. But even when we're playing and having a great time, he'll randomly, completely out of the blue start this behavior.
And he spits in my face, hits and kicks as hard as he can, slaps me occasionally. I took him to a child behavior specialist last year but he never showed this behavior there, so basically she said he seemed to have improved. Yeah right...
Is this a sign of anything? Like, ADHD, whatever? I want to get the appropriate help for him if this is anything that I should be extremely concerned about. I hope its a phase. But this is a phase that has lasted at least a year already.
