Please help, 8 year old son having anger issues.
I'm a mum of a great 8-year old boy who is having problems in his early life. After a long battle I managed to get him tested in school and they have found that he has auditory working memory problems. He is below average for writing but average for reading. I still believe (feel) there is more but, a plan has been put in place, so happy for now. However, my problem is that his behaviour is very different at home than in school: frustration, anger, very low self confidence, low concentration (mostly for homework), never sits still, always interrupts, and now, biting himself when angry or frustrated. He hit out at me for the first time yesterday. I was shocked. My husband and I don't know where to turn as we have no confidence whatsoever in our doctors. Please help as it's hurting us all.
