Behaviour problems at school


continues from here, sorry I saw the last message only now.

I am losing my own nerves and sleep with this problem. Sometimes it is okay for months sometimes problems on consequent days. He is 9 and has been bullied on and off at school since the first year. I feel the school doesn't do enough to prevent bullying and now after all these years he has started bullying or inconsiderate behaviour himself. The funny thing is the problem is mainly at school, but if there is a bad day at school then it affects home life. He has periods when he thinks everyone hates him and is against him, says he want to die and hits himself on the head with his fist or hits his head against a wall or a door. Also slams doors or starts annoying others by poking and pinching or slapping at them. This is very distressing for me to watch.

I had some treatment after an especially bad bulyying incident in year one. In addition to one specific bully my child is very upset for all the people who surround them to laugh and make comments which made him feel very humiliated.

One friend said maybe the problems are caused because he is clearly ahead of his class and often comments on how easy the school work is. He enjoys spending time with older children or grown-ups who are much more likely to share his interests. He can be quite philosophical and has a good imagination.

He does not have concentration problems, I don't think there is anything that matched with ADHD or ADD apart from him occasionaly talking over other people. He can be very warm loving funny person. Nosebleeds sometimes at night, occasionally when he should leave for school. Sensitive to cold ie if an arm or foot outside the blanket at night he starts coughing.

One relative said he has a dual personality like the boy from a nursery rhyme.

He likes raw vegetables, all kinds of fish and meat, doesn't like cakes and starch like pasta potatoes nor biscuits. What else do you need me to tell?

There used to be a homeopath coming here once a month, not longer I have left a hone message with another about an appointment and am waiting.

Any advice meanwhile?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
1. Describe in detail the main problem - appearance, colour, shape, symptoms, behaviour etc. What happens, when it happens etc.

2. Describe any pains or behaviours associated with the symptoms.

3. Describe anything that makes the problem worse ie. position, temperature, food etc.

4. Describe anything that makes the problem better ie. pain is better for cold bathing or at night in bed.

5. Go through each symptom or problem he/she has, doing the same thing (answering questions 1-4), even if the problem does not seem connected to any others.

6. When did each problem start? What happened around that same time?

7. What is his/her character like? What kinds of fears or anxieties does he/she have? What makes him/her irritable? Flesh out his/her personality.

8. What foods does he/she crave or hate? What drinks does he/she crave or hate? Is he/she sensitive to anything he/she eats or drinks?

9. How does the weather or season affect him/her?

10. How have all his/her milestones gone? Does he/she have any issue with speaking, learning, walking, climbing etc

11. How is he/she with socializing with others?

12. What is his/her bowel habit like? Any problems? Any odours, strange colours or stool shapes?

13. Where does he/she sweat? Does it have a smell or does it stain a particular colour?

14. History of illnesses in his/her life?

15. Has he/she reacted to any vaccines or medical drugs?

16. Problems with sleep? Position he/she sleeps in? Nightmares or any dreams he/she talks about?

17. How is he/she with animals?

18. How is he/she with adults or strangers?

19. What is the family history of illness and disease?

20. What was the pregnancy like? Any odd symptoms or feelings that disappeared once he/she was born?

Remember, try to outline all the various behaviours as colourfully as you can. Normally I would see him for myself, but through a forum like this you are my eyes and ears and I rely on you to help me form an accurate picture of him.

Also be aware that the key to solving this case might lay in the physical symptoms or history, so try to cover everything.
