Dear All, Hi..I have just now joined the group. I have a kid of 5 years who will turn 6 by 1st Spetember. Since one year we have observed that he...
1. Always bites, scratches & hits us very badly. My wife has developed many wounds on her hand.
2. He throws away/tears/brakes things when in angry.
3. He also behaves in the simlar fashion everywhere most of the time.
4. He does not listen to us. He always cries and either watches TV or Video on Internet.
5. He is nt willing to go to school and always finds an excuse. He uses all his tactics to avoid school.
He is very loving. Eating is not so good. Weight and Height average. Many a times says that he wants to be our child only in every birth.
Please guide us. We are emotionally very upset.
I think u should evaluate him by a good developmental Paediatrician.
If u r in Bangalore Dr.Mahadevaiah is very good.
Going to the right doctor is very important.dont go to psychologists,behavioral therapist.
Follow what ur Paediatrician says.
Sharma, You definitely must be going through a lot... Its completely scary to see your child behaving uncontrollably violent.
What kind of programs does he watch? You may want to disconnect all these electronic media in your house for a while.
The behaviors that you have mentioned are usually seen in aspergers, adhd, autism, bipolar and schizophrenic kids.
Take him to a good child psychiatrist for a diagnosis. Mostly they would prescribe antipsychotic drugs. I would not recommend drugs on a young child unless all other alternate options are tried out first. So just get a diagnosis first and before giving the drugs try alternate remedies first. See if these violent outbursts lessen if you join him in heavy sports activities like swimming, tennis. Enroll him in yoga classes. Try homeopathy and Ayurveda. And stop, I mean STOP junk food , sugar. They are known to cause unreasonable rage in children.
If all these fails, the only way is drugs -- you would atleast have some peace at home.
It is true,as Mr.NJ said.Allow to play along with other children.
Thank you all for sughestions. We will try to implement it.
I am thinking that he might be doing all these to get attention. Many kids at this age do this. Try any creative ideas to divert him at somethign else at that time rather than saying no. The more we say no they would like to do it.
My daughter is also 6 years and I still feed her many a time. So dont worry about the eating pattern.
