Button

Why is it that your children always seem to know what buttons to push and when to push them? Today I got home from work and needed to go get band aids for my daughter. We get to Wal-Mart and get the band aids, and go look for some buttons for her school uniforms and some shoe laces. Spent maybe a total of 20 minutes there and my son runs off or doesn’t follow me when we are finished in an area. He just stays there. Then we have to go back and get him or let him catch up to us. Left there totally frustrated with him and still didn’t have the buttons we needed. We head over to Hobby Lobby. The story repeats he wanders off, plays on things that aren’t supposed to be played with and annoys the hell out of me. We find what we need and get to the checkout. While waiting to checkout he starts playing with everything in line. Tell him to stop and he continues. Finally we pay for our buttons and go home.

I had promised to take them to McDonald’s for lunch. So around noon we head out for lunch. Get to McDonald’s and start to order and guess what the boy does? Runs off again. We get lunch and he starts to snag some of my fries so I take some of his and he starts yelling at me. I ask him to calm down and get himself under control or his Happy Meal goes in the trash. He stops for a minute and them starts yelling again. Well the Happy Meal ended up in the trash and we headed home.

When we got home he took his afternoon pill, got lunch and got sent to his room. So why do I feel like the bad person here? Why I feel like I did the wrong thing? My daughter was the one apologising for the way he behaved not him. She felt bad about the money waisted on the Happy Meal and that our lunch out was ruined and that we had to go home to eat it.

Does anyone out there have any suggestions? I have no idea how to handle him anymore. I have a 9 year old son with ADHD that I am at wits end with. I feel lost and out of control with him. It seems he is always angry at someone. His sister, me, dad, and even himself.
