zannej May 3, 2014 Share May 3, 2014 The parents have tried to have the kid evaluated but the doctors said they can't do it until he's actually five. The same child was trying to ride a tricycle and kept ramming a car and couldn't figure out why he couldn't go through it. He also has no concept of personal space and climbs all over people and does not listen when they tell him to stop it. He's in pre-school but one of his teachers has been doing his homework for him and he's failing-- partially because of behavior. He hits and chokes other children and throws tantrums.His father was abusive but he's pretty much out of the picture now. His step father has been trying to work with the kid to help him out and is trying to find ways to get him to behave and to teach him how to interact, but the kid is frustrating to be around because he hits people and throws things at them when they don't pay attention to him. He used to try to claw his own face up and the stepfather had to put him in a bear-hug to stop him, but he's apparently stopped that behavior now. He's improved with the stepfather's help, but I'm still worried about the kid. I'm hoping the damage from the father can be undone. The one-year-old child in the family is already showing signs of being much smarter than her half-brother. Link to comment
