Hi, this is my first visit to the bulletin board in a long time and I note the format has changed. I posted some time back regarding my grandson and his diagnosis of Tourettes Syndrome. He's doing fine over the past year. He's learned to read and his tics have decreased. All in all we're satisfied that his progress is upwards and he's popular and reading seems to be the only weak area he has at 8 years old.
He has a brother, who is now 5 and I'm concerned about some of his behaviours and hope someone can shed some light.
He seems to be very aggressive. He cannot pass anyone without giving them a punch or a kick. He has a really bad temper, can't stand being told off about anything and yesterday hit his grandpa for telling him off.
He hits his brother all the time, he hits me (nana) and his mom.
He used to bite a lot, now he does it occassionally, still wears a diaper to bed and wants to be spoon fed. He demands constant attention, using a loud voice and interrupts all the time. He cannot wait his turn and I'm concerned he's also showing symptoms of Tourettes, but that his disposition will be more aggressive and combatative than his brother who is gentle and kind. Does anyone on the forum have a similar experience. At least we can be prepared and help him if we are forewarned. Thanks.
