I don’t know what to do about violent behaviors on a daily basis; hitting, hair pulling, pushing, etc. I am at the end of my rope. I have a room that she can stay in until she calms down, but I am a widowed single parent and I'm extremely tired mentally and physically. She takes Risperdal when she gets home from school.
