calledtobehome Posted September 2, 2012 Share Posted September 2, 2012 I'm hoping that someone can help me out or atleast point me in the right direction. My 8 yr old son is a very bright boy. He excels academically but something is gong on with him I just can't figure it out! I can honestly say everyday we are having issues with him. He's easily upset, some form of whining, complaining about every little thing his older brother does, like singing, any noise, or humming, it really sends him over the edge if he doesn't stop. He complains about long rides in the car even if it's to a fun place he really want to go. He says the car ride really makes him sick. And although the ac is on he has to open his window for some relief. I noticed he took his new pillow case of his pillow because it was to itchy and rough. He fastens his swim trucks tight, ties his shoes tight, and complains about some of the tags in his shirts or pants. The biggest issue we are dealing with now is not wanting to go out to eat at a resturant. We really don't go out much but we enjoy eating out maybe twice a month. He really has gotten bent out of shape over this! I talked to him today to try and get to the bottom of it and he said he likes to eat at home and doesn't like all the noice and clattering sounds and commotion in the resturant. He asked if we could get the food to go? Sorry for being long winded. He has his 8yr old check-up with his PED next week and I would like to mention some of these things to her. Does anyone else see this type of behavior in their children? If so what could be the cause of it? Thanks for your help Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
