because I am literally going to have a heart attack if I have to listen to um uh tuh tuh ugh urg ah ah umt umt any longer.

He constantly appears to be in distress and aggitation.

He screams 'NO FUCK OFF' at people saying hello.

Even the way he breaths makes me want to go hide in a cupboard right now.

Do they drug children up in this country? I think any type of relaxation drug would be perfect.

AIBU to try getting him on meds to calm him the * down, (before I lose my mind)???

Why does he shout that at people saying hello?

CandiceMariePratt Thu 21-Jul-11 14:41:55

YABU! But maybe you could talk to your Dr to get some help for coping with him better

Your 4 year old regularly swears at people? shock

Has been dignosed with SN at all?

Have you considered parenting classes. Something needs to change, but I doubt drugs are the answer. But in asnwer to your question, yes, when there is a proven medical need children can be given drugs i.e. ADHD meds, ADs etc.

grin at squeaky.

He shouts Fuck off?? shock I dont know about drugs but how about a clip round the ear??? Joke but not really.

Ern no, we dont drug kids in this country but most 4 years olds dont shout at people to fuck off - I hope you are dealing with that appropriately.

Perhaps it is "learned" behaviour... sad

Who the fuck taught a 4 year old to say 'fuck off' shock. That is bad shit.

StealthPolarBear Thu 21-Jul-11 14:45:57

Why is he like this, and what help are you getting with him? You sound at the end of your tether, how are you coping with him?

grin at HTH

is he unwell? ignore him?

you only have to say something once, have them repeat it, you say dont say taht and suddenly its all they want to say.

Drugging up a four year old so he doesnt annoy you as much....against wanting help to find out whats (if anything) wrong with him and get him the help he needs....

shock and sad

Can we do this with everyone who annoys us, or just children who may be ill?

DogsBestFriend Thu 21-Jul-11 14:53:32

I'm waiting to see if the 4 yo fucker-offer is a SN child who has tested his mum's patience beyond measure or a NT child who needs a smack. grin

<<settles down comfortably and pours more tea>>

did you not watch loui thereux`s american kids programme?

He constantly appears to be in distress and agitation, shouts Fuck Off at people who say hello and you just want to drug him up?

Way to go in sorting out your 4yo's problems! hmm

squeakytoy Thu 21-Jul-11 14:55:07

I am waiting to see if the Op bothers to reply, with a slighly more detailed and less inflammatory post than the first..

DogsBestFriend Thu 21-Jul-11 14:58:24

Come on folk, surely the OP is (albeit inadvisably on MN grin ) having a micky-taking rant to get it off her chest and isn't serious.

Surely.... ? confused

He's 4 years old. I suggest that you start looking into the fact he may have problems that need addressing.
If my 4 year old told people to fuck off she would have got a clip around the earhole (and thats not a joke) but she's NT.

squeakytoy Thu 21-Jul-11 14:59:20

I think OP has gone and hid in her cupboard grin

<<Brief hijack>>

SN = Special Needs, what do SEN and NT mean in this context please?

mum0ftw0 Thu 21-Jul-11 14:59:43

He has 'probable autism' (clinical report) major speach delay.
He shouts fuck off reguarily to his teachers, chucks chairs, etc.
He screamed some colourful language at his entire preschool the other day, when they all said hello at him arriving.
He has a one on one SENCO who looks after him at preschool but even she is upset with how he is.

I'm taking part in my 4th (in two years) childcare/parenting course right now at the childrens centre.
He's going to a special needs school in september so they can manage him better.
We have a social worker who's doing surprise visits as she's concerned about why he's so angry.

My son has always had my undivided attention, when he was younger he was one of those babies that didn't even cry for more than 2 minutes and I was there, I breastfed him for just over 2 years, always putting him first in everything.
But in the last two years his behaviour has become diabolical.
I have a 1 and half year old who sometimes cries because he gets frightened of his brother's outbursts. Infact he has a nice bruise on his head right now from getting knocked flying over by DS1 this morning which I'll have great fun trying to explain to the social worker if she comes now, because I'm quite sure she already suspects I beat them in private.

Anyway my 4 yr old is obsessed with repeatedly pressing (the same) buttons on his toys, pulling on door handles repeatedly, opening and closing cupboards for agggggeeess.
I have a great tollorance to it usually, but I'm at the end of my tether right now.

If any drug can make him more calm, then why not?

mum0ftw0 Thu 21-Jul-11 15:00:10

I'm completely serious.
