    Hello everyone,

    I’m in the process of diagnosing my son he is four, we are going to a psychiatrist soon and i wanted to know what it will in-tell?
    My anxiety is through the roof every day waiting for a call from the school of him hitting someone or not listening, biting not sitting and the list goes on. . . I cry every night i’m just not sure how to get through to him that what he doing is wrong, when i ask he says the don’t want to share or i just want to play by myself.

    we took he Vanderbilt questionnaire

    Kind regards,
    Eliza
