He has never been an aggressive child really infact he is usually the whipping boy for his older sibs. They blame everything on him and try to get him in trouble, so maybe he is just lashing out at someone smaller then him. I don't know. Geeze what I wouldn't give for semi-normal kids!!!!
I'm glad they took you seriously and they're getting you some help for your son. Let us know how it goes!

Re: My 4 yo tried to kill the baby!!! UPDATE

Adderall is a mighty potent drug! I hope not to offend you, but I can't believe that his doctors have him on this at such a young age. He might be reacting to that. I've had students who are taking that and acted very out of character. That, in combination with the other med he is taking might be causing some side effect. I would speak with your doctor about that. Hugs to you and your family. I hope you can figure out what the problem is.

mamma!! I hope you can get everything worked out!!

I am a little surprised that your doc prescribed adderall this young too but with my ds having ADHD and other issues, I can understand.

For the pp, clonidine doesn't work on the same pathway as Adderall. It is used to calm your brain down enough to help you sleep. DS and I take Deseryl for the same reason.

I am confused...why take a med that increases blood pressure (adderall) and then clonidine which does the opposite? I guess I just don't get medicating children. Oops, there I am on my soapbox. I'm going to get down now.

I agree with this. Definitly NOT normal. I am so sorry. I would get him in somewhere and never have the baby out of your site.

I just want to you to know that it's not your fault. You are doing the best for your kids and it shows since you are caring enough to ask for advice. At least you are not blowing it off. Hang in there mama!
