I gave my boss an ultimatum. *Update*

I'm at the end of my rope with this child. He's four and I don't have anything else to give him. I've tried so many different tools and I attended three workshops and still nothing is working.
He flips out and screams and refuses to do things and is just a terror. I've reached my limit which has never happened in my 20+ years teaching and now in child care.
Today he attacked me. Scratched my hands and went for my face but I blocked him. I left him flipping out with another teacher watching over him and I went to my boss. I said it's him or me. If he's here tomorrow I won't be.
This is very upsetting but it's been since September. I've done everything I can possibly think of to help him. I'm done. I have nothing left.

Update: I did not lose my job. We had a meeting today with mom, my director and myself. He is not being kicked out, he's getting a one on one, so I can still focus on the other kids in my room too.
I feel very lucky that we came to a great solution.

    You cost money, he brings in money. Don't count on having a job tomorrow.

    Good luck.

    Does the mother know this - and is she taking responsibility for his negative behavior. See if he has been checked by a neurologist. Talk to your teacher friends and get their input. From all your experience, you must be a very wise teacher. What do you think it is?

    that should go over well, as we all know bosses love ultimatums.

    There was a girl in my daughter's kindergarten class like that. She would hit and throw stuff at the teacher. She was completely out of control.

    I felt horrible for her.

    Well he's probably on the spectrum, so he gets  pass

    This breaks my heart because my grandsons teachers couldn't get thru to him and he was kicked out of 2 learning centers. Finally one woman, figured out how to relate to him, how to teach him. And he has been flourishing.
