I Didn't Expect THAT Phone Call
Well after my last post, it's a bit ironic that Dominic's teacher called me today. I guess they are noticing Dominic backsliding as well. She said that he's refusing to do the things he's told to do, pooping his pants on the playground, laughing when he gets introuble, yelling, hitting and being aggressive towards the teachers. She doesn't think their techniques are helping at that he needs more help. She knows our Ped. does not believe in ADHD and meds so she's rounding up some referrals for us. Most likely we'll start with a Child Psychologist and then probably end up having to switch Ped's I guess if he gives me flack over it. I'm just sad by this. I thought things were getting worse just here, not both places. She told me it's like he can't control his emotions at all. I told her he's been like the biggest drama queen here. He's either happy, pissed off and ready to kick your ass, or crying over something stupid like me opening his bedroom window to let fresh air in. And the crying isn't just crying, it's like straight meltdown/freakout crying with running around, falling on the floor, and bashing his head into the wall. I don't know anything about the meds except from my good friend who's son was has been on them for 2 years. I don't even know if I want to give him meds but I'm feeling so beat by this right now I might try anything at this moment. It's sad when the preschool teacher calls and says "how has Dominic been acting?" and your response back is "I'm about ready to kill him." That was her first question to me and my answer. I should feel horrible about saying that but somedays it's the truth. It was hard holding back tears on that call.
