I wrote in not long ago about my son's behaviour, it's seems to be getting worse and I'm lost!!
My son has been in his first year of school for all of 4 months, he's been suspended twice from the first school he went to in term one and now in a different school who was supposed to offers better support for him, he got suspended AGAIN! 3 times now, twice in one week!!
It is clear my son has extreme behavioural issues at school! Like abundantly clear!! He bites, kicks, screams, runs away, chokes other kids, he's climbed fences, tree's, pushes things off desks, pulls things out if draws or off the classroom walls, throws chairs across the room, kicks over pot plants and locks himself in offices, he has even on many occasions run to his sisters class room and refused to leave, and this happens DAILY!! He is NOT like this at home, at home I have 110% control over him, he pushes boundaries and on the odd occasion I do see this behaviour but I snap him out of it quickly.
The school have called me almost every single day, multiple times a day telling me to pick him up. Thursday I left work at 2pm for a parent teacher interview, Friday his behaviour got violent and the principal told me to pick him up at 10am, he was suspended Monday, Tuesday I left work again at 10am to pick him up, I've met with the principal and discussed everything AGAIN! twice in less than a week but ive had to leave work early AGAIN!! Work isn't going to take much more of this and being a single mum I don't have anyone else to help me!!
The paediatrician told me he has ADHD but refuses to meficate him till he is 6 which is 4 months away. I have begged, pleaded and called weekly for help!! And am left with "how are you coping are you seeking help?".. 2 psychologist one after the other and $1200 later my 1hr weekly appointments and im just left with detailed instructions on what I AM ALREADY DOING!! Like I need parenting advice?? My parenting isn't the issue!! Im now seeking a second opinion from a different psychologist, he attends play therapy weekly and is booked in to be assessed on July 1st, which mind you is private and will cost $3,500 because the public system has a 2 yr waiting list.
I am literally trying everything I can think of, I know my son had ADHD but no one will give me medication he needs, school is constantly on my back and therapy isn't helping, now I am majorily at risk of loosing my job. I've even gone to the extent of calling/emailing the education department and anyone who will listen!!
What do I do?? Where can I go?? How do I help my son?
