My wife and I are having issues with our 6 year old (my son). He lives with us full time- doesn’t see his mother as she lives in New Zealand and calls him every 2nd weekend. Last year was a tough year for everyone no doubt him as well this seems to be when issues became more frequent. Is it just: Him starting school Only going to school a couple of days a weeks Stopping school Home schooling Us having to leave him for a few weeks (the new baby was 9 weeks perm and we had to be in melbourne) Easter my wife stayed in Melbourne to continue care for our new born. Going back to school His step mum being at home with his brother while he goes to school Not getting attention he use to I started new job in amongst this were I leave early in the morning and don’t see anyone until the get home. My wife and I decided to try to have a child together so now we have a 9 month old (ours), 6 year old (mine) and 14 year old (hers) just another Brady bunch. We treat the 3 all the same as if they were ours! My wife and sons relationship was good but now he is causing my wife who is normally a very bubbly and happy person to feel anxious, stressed and unhappy. She constantly asks what are we going to to do? My response is I don’t know what you want to do. We have tried discipline- he doesn’t care, taking this away- he doesn’t care, missing out on things- he doesn’t care. He has seen a psychologist which helped identify issues from his past. A GP has recommended with see a paediatric doctor for potential autism. Is there any other services to tap into or any other suggestions from other parents with similar issues.
