Two weeks ago my son and I started seeing a counselor together, and she's helped me discipline him and calm him down when he gets upset. I've been reading about ways to help him behave and be happier too and his behavior the past week or so has been improving so much!
He's only hit me once this week, when before he would basically every other day if not more. And he usually listens to me when I tell him to come here. He's even starting to like my parents.
My counselor is also helping with my trust and trauma issues, and I think after a while it will help my self-esteem and ability to relate to other people as well. I realy hope so.
If he keeps this up, I'm going to enroll him in first grade this September and won't have to home school him. I'm so happy! <3
