My son is 3yrs old with ACC, he is very smart and picks up on certain things quickly. He loves music and has great imagination. Usually he is like any other sweet little boy but lately he has gotten a temper. Everything we ask him even before we finish he yells “NO!” When he gets hurt or scared my instinct is to love him and make it better. He freaks out and tells us to leave him alone and some times gets physical and hits or kicks us. The older he gets the worse it is. He has these episodes and if we ignore his tantrums usually he is OK in a few minutes and he even apologizes but it is very frustrating for us to watch him get so upset. And it is hard for us to take him to public places because he is either happy and climbing around or mad and causing a huge seen. He has always had extra strong emotions. (For example) When he is happy he is Hyperactive and energetic, when he is sad he is dramatically sad and when he doesn’t get his way he holds grudges and yells and so on. He is usually not very aggressive but I’m worried if it is only going to get worse. Guess I just need to know if there is any one else that is going through a similar situation. We love him so much but we are frustrated and the Doctors can’t really tell us if it could be part of the ACC affecting his emotions. Thanks for listening.
