My 8 year old son’s behaviour troubles us. He is extremely destructive (he’s started to pull his bed, sisters doll house, swing set apart) never listens to what he’s asked to do no matter the reward/punishment. He’s eaten raw chicken twice even though he knows it can make him extremely ill. When it comes to anything that’s not his (at home) he takes it- be it a lolly, a toy even tools. He’s been assessed by a school psychologist and speech therapist he has a “slight learning delay” but is fine behaviorally at school. I’m wondering do we now seek further help from doctor/paediatrician or hope he grows out of it. It’s putting a strain on me and how I interact with him.
