My 3 year old son has always been a very strong willed child and described by grandparents, etc has fresh. He is very set in his ways and until recently I dreaded taking him out publically because it usually ended up with a major temper tantrum. On the other hand, people always have described him as "extremely bright" identifying and writing letters and numbers before he was 2. I have always described him as having an obsession with letters and numbers. I have just always felt that he was a boy and just very socially immature and just did not "get" a lot of his actions. And although I feel I am adequately strict and structured with him, I began to feel that his behavior was my fault. He started pre-school in September and things just got worse. His teacher, who has a wonderful reputation and many years of experience, seemed extremely overwhelmed by him. She said that he was very socially inappropriate and that other children would get annoyed with him. He refused to follow the routine of the day and often would go off and do what he wanted. She said that he constantly put himself in dangerous situations and he acted very peculiar. He would often repeat the same thing over and over. At home, with his sister and with us, he is very lovable and does initiate interactions. He does love to play with his sister. However, he also plays very well alone and can sit for hours drawing very detailed pictures of cows, he is obsessed with farm animals. Recently, he has started to spell words on his paper such as cow, moon, jump. But he can not tell you what happened during show and tell at school. He can definitely get his wants and needs across and can answer simple "wh" questions but a lot of the time beyond that he can't. He also talks in a very high pitched voice which i thought was just him pretending but now I am not too sure. My husband is diagnosed with ADHD. The positive news is since Christmas break the school has seen major improvments in him. I am just sooo confused and really don't know what to do. he is an extremely affectionate and lovable boy and loves to snuggle and play with his sister and cousins but sometimes i just don't feel that his Social maturity is at any level of his academic level(which I think is too advanced for a 3 year old). Please help!!!!
