3 year old bucks, kicks, hits as well NEW
by: Mandy

My 3 year old (4 in a few weeks) has ALWAYS had the exact same reactions when being held when he's in a rage. He has always been uncontrollable with me. I can't even take him out of the house without the fear that he's going to dart off from me faster than I can keep up. I've been busted up several times by his raring, bucking, kicking, hitting, biting, slapping, spitting, head banging etc. You would think that after 30 minutes of this he would give up or at least act tired but my boy can go on for ever fighting me. He was DX with "severe" ADHD/ODD earlier this year as well as his older brother with the same DX. I'm worried tho that he has bi-polar.

a little incite and shared frustrations NEW
by: Missy

Im 23 a mom of two boys. I was diagnosed with bipolar at 20 years old. I struggled my whole life with the "mood swings." however everyone always loved to have me around and always told my dad what an angel I was when I was little but my dad had witnessed my not so nice side. who could believe this sweet girl so well mannered could be like that? Well now we know I have bi polar. I am now a mother and have been struggling with my youngest (3yrs) boy. He is destructive and angry and violent. He is sweet and cuddly and compassionate. I worry that because bi polar runs strong in my family that this could be what is going on with him. when I explained these issues with his dr. she said he fits the autism spectrum. At the end of this month we go in for a 4 hour evaluation with a team of drs. So we will know for sure then. But I totally get it. I have had bloody noses and fat lips, black eyes and a chipped tooth.

My Child NEW
by: Anonymous

I am sorry you are going through this. My daughter started at around 1 or two with her tantrums as the doctors called them. When she was 5 she had a seizure were she passed out. This is how i got somebody to listen to me. When she sprained my finger and my shoulder and started being violent i talked to the doctors. Eventually, the school noticed that she was not paying much attention at school and they talked to me and finally referred her to counseling. They found out everything i told them was true. They did a home visit and realized i was not lieing. My advice is to video tape one of his tantrums and show a child counselor. This may be hard to do but it may get you toddler the help they need.

Screaming Toddler in Public
by: Momx2

My 3 year old daughter has been experiencing these screaming episodes when we go to stores, church, anywhere in public. She often performs smaller versions at home when people visit or when we take walks outside. She is very social, curious and inquisitive. She is very verbal and always wants to know the name of every singer and song on the radio. She plays at home with toys and dolls and re-inacts all of her episodes when we get home. The most recent major episode was on a trip to Toys 'R Us. As we were leaving, she said hi like she always does to a friendly customer and the customer replied, "Hi how are you?" This sent our daughter screaming in a nearly possessed fit of rage where she was inconsolable. She often repeats things, like she will say, "Hi, hi, hi. Do you like Hannah Montana?" Initially, some people wouldn't speak to her and I don't know if this prompted this behavior but now she does it to even the nice, friendly people. Last week at church as we were leaving she saw everyone lined up at the exit and started the screaming again. It doesn't make sense to me because she loves to interact with people and talks all the time. I've tried calmly talking to her, screaming back, putting her in time out, spanking, etc. but it seems to be getting worse. It's been going on for at least 9 months. We've had to switch church services because of it and are limited and fearful of going anywhere really. What can I do? I'm nearly at my wit's end.

only at certain times
by: Anonymous

My heart goes out to you. I too am facing a similar situation but my daughter is 14 years old. she has been put on medication only recently but it is not working enough and she refuses to go to school. When she was your son's age she had similar characteristic's. As well, no one would believe such "AN ANGEL" would be like that when they are so well behaved at school and SHY. Well when she got home all hell broke loose. We adopted her internationally and do not know any background information. My best advise looking back is getting a qualified person to do an psyco educational assessment (that the school would accept) in Canada this is around 1500.00 Also get on the list for a good child psychiatrist . I had to demand this which took me several years to comvince them something was wrong. Also get a small tape recorder and also a video camera. This is your amazing proof and can be sent by computer to a doctor. You should not have to live like this but what am I saying - I am living like this. It is awful, I am at the end of my rope. Next week, we are finally getting a diagnosis from the psychiatrist. He asked for parent and teacher reports and also had that assessment I spoke to you about. (this is imperative) Don;t wait for the school to get this done . they will not. Our last resort is getting on the right combination of mood disorder medications because of her age we will have to put her in the care of a theraputic institution (which breaks my heart) but we have done everything and beyond with her and it will be for her out well being. She needs an education. At these places, there are more people to deal with these things and not just one person "the mother". What ever you decide you owe it to your son and yourself to get the best care you can and at what ever means you have to do it. Take care of yourself and I wish you only best wishes.
