Priapetic: You'd think that before someone calls someone else out for presenting an uninformed view, they'd take the time to learn there's no such thing as a "bell curve" - that term is just a colloquialism referencing the shape of a histogram of a normal distribution, popularized by the book The Bell Curve.
Flarn: /csb timeMy 5.5 year old son has had problems like this for years now. Been kicked out of 4 daycares for similar aggression issues, been through therapy, goes to special ed preschool where they address behavioral issues, been diagnosed ADHD but waiting over a year for an autism eval. It's most certainly not a case of a 'preshus snoflake syndrom' or whatever, because I don't put up with that kind of shiat nor do I believe in coddling children. I was raised with lots of discipline and smacks and spanking if I got too unruly. He has faced firm discipline at home all his life, and it has evolved based on what works and what didnt and what therapists recommend. He doesn't get candy at home and generally does behave quite a bit better here. I have no issues with bringing other kids over to play. It's been a long slow hard battle and we've tried a TON of behavioral techniques, but the best luck we've had was with changing his diet. We followed the Feingold Diet to remove all artificial flavors, dyes, certain preservatives and some fruits/veggies. After a few weeks, it really did help. He still has aggression issues and focus issues and is very impulsive, but it's just more manageable. He still has bad days at school with hitting and whatnot, but they are much fewer and farther between. Also, he's not fat and I have a job. There are definitely fishy parts with this story, but I can empathize with some of it.
The My Little Pony Killer: Astorix: Nobody on this thread has an autistic child.Neither do the parents in TFA.And do you know what Autism is not? An excuse for allowing your child to do whatever they want, whenever they want.
Flarn: Intrepid00:Define "firm discipline"As I said, a variety of tactics have been employed. Very firm tones when rules are broken, lots of communication about what he did wrong and why it's wrong, clear consequences laid out that are always followed through if threatened, well spelled out rewards and punishments, reward charts, loss of toys and other privileges, timeouts, ignoring, and even spanking for the worst behavior. The spankings increased aggression so we stopped doing that. It wasn't the first thing we tried, but in the end we had to try everything. These days it's just clear rewards for the good behavior, firm expressions of disappointment, discussion, the occasional timeout, and loss of stuff for serious infractions. Tantrums will generally get him ignored or put in bed. If we are in public, I have no issue with picking up my screaming child and taking him home, no matter where we are or how much fun we were having. You behave or you don't get fun things. Period.That having been said, I do have to have some compassion for him sometimes when he truly doesn't understand what he did wrong. Part of the problem with the potential ADHD/Autism issue is normal discipline just doesn't work because their brains are not wired up right to understand the consequences of their actions before they take the action, no matter how many times you might go over that or how many times they get in trouble. In the heat of the moment, he often can't process right from wrong. When calm, you can quiz him six ways to Sunday about the right way to act in a given situation and he will respond correctly every time.Astorix:Is your son a hugely picky eater.Luckily, he's not. That's made the diet change easy. He is extremely verbal and has a higher than average vocabulary for his age, so he fully understands (after explanations) when something isn't good for him to eat and abides by it.

That's a stupid thing to think because people don't normally talk like that.
Priapetic: You're correct that people frequently display their ignorance
olddinosaur: Hmmm, let's see:1. Parents do not teach self control to little slowflake;2. Little snowflake grows up thinking she rules the world;3. World has other ideas, expects little snowflake to have manners and show respect for others;4. Little snowflake throws tantrums when she has to behave like everyone else;5. Parents blame teacher, schools, system, ADHD, Ass--burgers' syndrome-----everyone but themselves, for not doing their duty.That about get it?
skozlaw: Priapetic: You're correct that people frequently display their ignoranceFor example, they create a Fark handle that means "dick" but don't do anything more clever with it than look up an adjective for it?Take your pseudo-intellectual bullshiat elsewhere. I find it shallow and pedantic.

Intrepid00: Define "firm discipline"
