So, we have been referred by the school to Barnardos for some family support. Master7 has become out of control and i am really struggling to cope with him. At school he is an angel, He is struggling with his work and is below average with his reading and writing, the head wanted him to be statemented but he was assessed and was found not to need it, he has been making steady progress and we are all really pleased.
At home it is a different story, we don’t know what to do with him, if anyone asks him to do anything, something simple like tidying up after himself or taking something out to the bin, he will fly into a rage, screaming and having an almighty tantrum. If we punish him by grounding or taking something away from him, he threatens to run away and says he hates us all, he is becoming increasingly violent towards his siblings and I just can’t have that, there seems to be a lot of jealousy towards his 2 younger siblings and says we always buy them things and leave him out.
I can’t for the life of me figure out where all the hatred is coming from, his dad left when he was 1 and he was 2 when I met OH.
So, we are on the waiting list, I know there won’t be an answer over night but at least I can look forward to having that extra support.
