lw is 2 1/2 who is into everything - i can sit reading/colouring/singing with him but this doesn't seem to content him. he is great when left with other people and their kids but seems to lash out on his older brother who's 5. yesterday was a particularly bad day for all in his path. from biting hitting throwing i even found a pencil in my fire guard smoldering away. my husband cant believe that some days i've gone without a drink and eating because he requires fulltime constant attention. i've got information and tip books from a friend who is a health visitor but this doesn't seem to help just feel i'm at the end of my tether. can anyone advise on a next step maybe

He sounds a real handful My friends son is the same age and she can't look away as he's off to the front door and attempting to unlock it! He has worked out how but she's had a bolt put on high up....he's now worked out that this is what's keeping him from escaping and is trying to drag things to the door!

Very active kids are such hard work...how is his language? Does he understand it when you tell him no....or try to explain danger? Will he follow instructions? My friends DS won't....he is very bright technically but won't really communicate so she's asking for a referall for speech and language help....
