my 11 year old son has bipolar disorder * and adhd and odd. Every couple or few weeks he goes into his manic phase and opposite of adults, when a child is manic the symptoms manifest differently. Instead of being over elated and stuff they get angry and agressive. We just moved into our first apartment ever * because of his violence I have always lived in a single family house. The neighbor downstairs says that the walls are paper thin and that the last people here were evicted because they were "too loud". anyway, hes in his manic phase, this includes him being angry, crying often and over little things, and being up till 1 or 2 am every night. I dont know what to do to help him and or keep him from throwing a temper tantrum. I try to distract him by telling him silly things that I think will make him laugh and he just says leave me alone. I cant get him to take his medication * and am not sure it would help if he did* he asked me just now if he can ride his bike 12 miles to down town to his friends house and i told him no, now hes crying. I dont know how to help him. Any one with bipolar or just creative, have any suggestions how I can help him. I am tired of just letting him do or say what he wants to avoid confrontation
