Im at my limit

My older son has been off the wall. he is non-stop. He plays that weird game (seen in another post) 24 hours a day. He bothers everyone with this game, like going up to them and swinging the stuffies in their face.

My younger son, all he does is yell "get out here" "leave me alone" blah blah.

I love this kid, but over the last couple of months, he is over the top. Plus, he talks back, surprise surprise, hes 13, but there is no down time with him.

as i write this post, i had tto get off the seat to address his craziness four times already.

Im at a loss. He is regressing in schoool, becoming aggressive with teachers and students.

He pretends to have a shot gun and shoots.....the principle doesnt want to suspend him because she knows he is just playing, but there is policies around this.

Once we get his testing results, we will have an IEP meeting and though he is in a regular school, in an LD classroom, i think its time to come to realization that maybe he is just not ready to be a 'normal' kid.

sorry for the vent, he is just driving me up the wall...

That sucks.

That is what blogs are for, to vent.

My daughter does weird stuff talking to people that aren't there and I have no idea how to get her to stop either.

hummm, I have had a busy week and just read your post. It's such a strange world we see our children live in... If only there were some way to Pop that bubble they have around themselves--that odd thing that no one can exactly pinpoint.

Non-stop. I don't believe that anyone who has not lived with this truth can fully understand the reality. I say, "Line of Sight at all time." and when I say this I mean it, yet no one gets it until they see it actually happen.

And, then when we say, "No, really--I mean line of sight at all times, 24/7, day in and day out, without exception!" I don't think anyone can believe thats rally what we mean.

what a roller-coaster this is, and hopefully you are getting some more answers.
