My son is 8 years old, and I have never had to be concerned about him getting into cleaning supplies, medicine, or anything. But within the past few months, he has put Tilex (cleaning solution) on his finger to taste it, then he got into the cough syrup and drank some, then told the teacher that he was drinking the cough syrup. I now have to deal with Children Services. I was trying to teach him to take his rispidal by himself, with supervision. Now the theory is that he got over confident and thought he could medicate himself. Everything is locked up and up high, but now I am worried sick. I am afraid to sleep at night because he might get up in the night (he never does) and get into something. I watch him constantly, I worry all the time. I don't know what to expect. Will he put his finger in the light socket? Will he wrap a cord around his neck? Will he turn the stove on and get burned? Will he touch the knives? All these I have tried to instill that he never does. We have discussed it at length. What about when he grows up? Can I ever trust him to microwave a meal? Can he ever be independent? I am so upset, I am having panic attacks, and migrains from the worry. I don't have a lot of time to check the website, but please e-mail me. I don't know where to turn. I have to call Children Services on Monday and talk to them, His behavior therapist has gone through the house and checked everything, but I can't stop wondering what will happen next. I just want to put him in a big bubble and keep him safe forever. But I can't but I don't know how to deal with this? Please someone help me.
