Hello and hugs to all I haven't been on for a while I really don't have much me time, but I need to know what I can do as far as discipline. My son will be 5 on the 1st and there are some regular boy behaviors goin on now that I feel that I don't know how to react to because I don't know if he understands me because of the diagnosis, but I really feel that these are regular run of the mill boy behaviors he tests me, he snaps when he is told "no" ( spoiled terribly by nana and pop-pop) so I tell him to sit in time out which totally does not work. I have asked his Dr. if he understands that he has done wrong and he reassured me that just because he has this diagnosis (PDD-NOS) that it does not give him carte-blanche to do whatever he wants and he should be disciplined, but how ?I just can't get over this feeling that he doesn't understand or learn when he has done wrong. I was so totally stressed that I just screamed which I know was wrong and totally ineffective cause then all he did was cry and scream If you could offer any advice in this area it would be greatly appreciated. I am just at a loss. Oh, he is to have his tonsils and adenoids removed in 2 wks and the ENT said that should decrease the hyperactivity because he should be sleeping better at night. Has anyone experienced this, any truth to it?
