Thanks Kathleen. The last 4 months we had 3 foster children, all age 2 and on 1 I notice a lack of focus (he can't watch Disney Junior for 1 minute ) and moments of temper and violent outburst where he plants his nails in my hand and drawing blood. He can't be trusted with our Maltese by himself or he will strike or kick the dogs. In our presence at our behest he will gently touch the dogs. Then he cries a lot in comparison with the other and seems to attach himself more to my husband than me. When mad he will start pulling on his hair so hard where he screams because it hurts him so we have to cut his hair. he will try to take all his clothes off when in his crib and even succeeded to climb out of it so my husband lowered the mattress. For his age he even don't talk baby talk like the others. He points at things he wants or pulled us to the refrigerator if he want to drink or eat. We discussed all this with his case worker and next week he is getting his first therapy with child specialist.View Thread
