See him?

See this face?

It's an adorable, beautiful, sweet little face...

Don'tcha think?

The problem is that the BOY this face belongs to has not been so adorable and beautiful and sweet. He is FIVE. He just turned five in October. But I feel like he is THREE all over again! What is going on with my monkey? When I ask him for or to do something he will say NO just like he did when he was 2 and 3. EXACTLY like he did. There are so many meltdowns lately. Everything is a battle. EVERY.THING. And we have to tell him things more than once before he will listen. I've witnessed a huge digression from this kid and I'm not sure why or where it came from. I've tried my darnedest to communicate with him. Something is going on and he doesn't know how to tell us. And I just can NOT figure it out. I am nearly at the end of my rope. I'm losing my mind with this whole situation. His love language is physical touch and I try to shower him with hugs and kisses. BUT (and this is bad, I know) it is SO HARD to do that when all he has been doing is acting out. Taking away things like karate, movies, and video games is NOT helping either. And the boys LOVE LOVE karate. I seriously am at a loss at this point. I just don't know how to handle it and it is so hard for me to NOT lash out in anger at this point because it is a daily thing whether he stays home OR goes to school.

Any help or advice? I'll take anything ya got...
