Hi Gia: Your struggles sound all too familiar. My son is 7 and is the SAME way, he is not medicated so it makes my days tough. I have been trying to implement mediation, he has been quite receptive (when I remember to use this method, sometimes I lose it too soon and we never get there 🙁 We will sit down together and take deep breaths, listen to calming music, usually in the end we both feel better and more relaxed. I have to constantly remind myself not to feel guilty, it’s not your fault, they just interpret the world differently, they are hyper sensitive and highly demanding, but sometimes I forget and I fight back (which gets us both nowhere FAST) Hang in there, you have the hardest job in the world, and I am sure to are doing amazing!!
