I'm coming back to just mommies after about a year. My name is julz and I am 23 I have 2 boys Joshua who is 3 1/2 and Blake who is 1 1/2. Both of my boys need extra help in one way or another. Joshua has been diagnosed with ADHD and Blake has been classified as "mentally delayed"...I can't believe I'm sharing this with a bunch of women I don't know but if Mom's can't be there for eachother I figure theres just no hope.
I have been feeling super guilty lately because I am getting SO FRUSTRATED! I've been pushing and pulling extra hard trying to get Joshua into the "extra help" pre-school in our town. It's been taking forever and I have a feeling they are not going to except him even though he is cognativly, socially and emotionally delayed not to mention has the classification. I always wanted to home school him and still do but he's so hard to get to sit down that I don't know if he would actually learn anything from me.
Blake gets all kinds of therapy through early intervention at our home and is actually learning things. But getting him to actually do what he is learning for example the sign for more, give me, ect or say a few words that he has is near IMPOSSIBLE...I know I am not supposed to give in when he wines, but hearing him scream breaks my heart.
I love my boys and would do anything for them but sometimes i get so frustrated im in tears....please tell me i'm not alone!
