He just has complete meltdowns if he doesn't get his own way. He hits us, has started back up off and on biting. He doesn't really talk at all and has only just started speech therapy. I will put him in time out when he is really bad which is in his room and he will just either keep coming back out or try and destroy the room or kick the walls.
He screams no at us all the time on and off. He also just goes and tries to destory things around the unit. He gets real angry and will start throwing things across the room eg. his little plastic table. He simply doesn't listen to us. I am willing to say I smack him but this does nothing. He just doesn't seem to care. Sometimes he will cry.
He is the type of kid who needs 24hr attention. I just don't always have the time to give him attention as I have to wash/iron and run my 17 year old daughter around. I also suffer chronic daily migraines which is not helping the situation. He seems to really be at his worst when I am feeling my worst.
He has a trampoline and sandpit and scooter for outback. He has plenty of toys, books and activities eg. playdo and lots of DVD's. He seems to me to not concentrate on any one thing for too long. My speech therapist the other day though said he has great concentration. If we take him out or to another families house his behaviour is fine.
The worst is if he just gets too much for me and I end up screaming at him which doesn't help my migraine and he yells back at me and starts growling at me. I just cant seem to calm him down. Talking to him is obviously hard as he doesn't talk yet. I still talk to him though. His toilet training is putting us through more stress but that is on my other post. I would appreciate any advice. He also doesn't sleep that well. He has always rolled around all night and during the day he cut out his day sleep quite early but is tired and cranky all day and night. He just won't go to sleep to late say about 8.30pm or so.
