My son has had a difficult week so far.
He is having difficulty with controlling his temper & has been getting 'stroppy' (as we like to call it) everyday at school but without having a valid excuse for his behavior. He was told by the headteacher on Monday if he disrupted class again he would have to send him home. That means either Neil or I having to leave work to be at home with him. It didn't come to that.
Until this afternoon. I had to leave the shop to get on a bus to get him from school because he hit one of the teachers. Mrs Kirby is a teaching assistant & is there for Jakes benefit to help him with his social skills & she takes the pressure off the class teacher so the other children don't get too distracted by Jakes tantrums. He hit her in the chest.
He has already been banned from playing on the wii this week & now that ban has been extended to the 1st of July. We talk to Jake about his behaviour but he just doesn't have the ability to stop himself 'losing it'. He is always genuinely sorry afterwards & it breaks my heart. I don't know what else to do.
Do we go back to the paediatrician & ask for more help? He was never officially diagnosed but we kept hearing that he was on the autistic spectrum.
I don't expect anyone to come up with an answer, I just needed to get this off my chest :(
Thankyou for 'listening'!! xx
