Sorry it took me so long to get back to everyone but my plate has been increasingly full besides my own 5 kids ages 5, 6, 8, 10 & 11I have been helping out family members by minding their kids here and there for a couple of days at a time over night ages 11mths, 15mths, 30mths & 4 yrs. And my baby brother is getting married this Sunday.
Well here is the list that I can think of @ the moment
1. very emotional
2. gets upset very easy
3. talks very loud (most of the time)
4. highly excitable
5. always on the go (sometimes has trouble sitting still)
6. alot of time we need to repeat what we say
7. needs to be touching someone most times (very clingy at times)
8. needs to be reassured, always needing a hug, kiss, hold hands or to say I Love You even if it is many times with in a few minutes
9.gets very whinny & moody @ times
10. has been getting short tempered & angry easier with siblings
11. to someone who doesn't know him it looks like a bratty kid throwing a tantrum and we think it is more than that. He is a very bright, (cooperative and helpful boy usually)
12. he does not sleep through the night he will wake up early morning and come in our room and sleep on the floor next to my side of the bed
13. he sweats horribly at times during the day (worse than all the other kids) and while he sleeps he is soaked in sweat.
14. when he was a baby he wasn't much into being touched
15. when he was about 5 or 6 when he was upset he would either hit himself or bang his head on the floor or wall
Any input, ideas & suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Thank YouVery Much

Subject: Budget101.com : Help on trying to find out if my son has something wrong
Date: Monday, June 23, 2008, 6:28 PM
I need some help trying to figure out if something is wrong with my 8
yr old son. So if those of you who have or know someone with some
type of emotional or behavioral type of problem could you please tell
me what the symptoms, characteristics, emotional physical traits
would be. And what it is they have.
I will also send a list of what is going on with him to try to
explain what is going on. But I want to sit down with my husband and
compile as much info as possible but right now I am stressed my baby
brother is getting married in less than amonth nothing is going right
and my family is throwing, running the wedding, making the food etc.
on none existent funds. Plus I have 5 young children ages 5, 6, 8,
10 & 11.
We had asked the doctor many yrs ago if something was wrong and she
said no he was probably just a highly emotional child but did no test
or looked any further than my question. When he was young he use to
hit himself in the head or bang his head on the wall or floor. The
doctor said it was nothing just his way of expressing himself.
Like I said above I will write some more once I clear my head and try
to organize my thoughts.
But to other people who don't know him they think it is just another
bratty misbehaving child.
