I am at my wits end. My 5 yr old ds is in reception and I just don't know what to do. He has always been emotional and not the most secure but every day is a struggle now. He is cries at anything and everything screams at me and is rude and demanding but really upset with it. He is fine at school but from the moment I wake him up and then again pick him up after school he's so difficult. It makes me so sad as I know it's under pinned by anxiety but I can't get to the bottom of it or find a way through. His siblings aren't like this and he's like it with me and OH. He seems jealous of his siblings too although plays well with them. I am more than willing to seek help and pay for it but don't know in what form ? Play therapy ? Parenting courses - I don't know. There isn't anything available through HV or GP. Can anyone give me any idea where to start with him. I know he needs more 1 on 1 time but I have literally no help from family and OH works long hours ( but is very supportive and keen to help too ). Currently feel so lost with my little boy...

I think this should have gone into behaviour/development in being a parent - I don't know how to ask for it to be moved - does anyone else ? Sorry !
