my grandson (4) was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. please anybody out there who has a young child with the same problem. He is very loving at one point and the next minute he does something mean to his sister or in daycare. his moodswings get out of controll and he needs very little sleep. we love him alot and want to help but it's not easy.his mother is a single parent, no contact to the dad and most people reject him thinking he is just a bad child. he learns very quick just from watching us and is always eager to help around the house and likes everything in it's right place.View Thread
