I know how you feel. I feel the same way with my son. He is 6 and has been diagnosed with intermittent explosive disorder and disruptive mood dysregulation disorder in addition to having ADHD. He is currently taking risperidone to help stabilize his moods. He is the worst from 4-8pm. I like to call it the witching hours. They are hell on earth. I am currently looking into seeking weekly therapy/counseling sessions for him. I will be following this thread as well to keep up with any tips.
