So my middle decided to headbutt my little in the face. Seeriously. He is 7, little is 4. His aggression just seems to be escalating lately.
Holidays are always hard. Less structure when not in school…added to holiday excitement. But, this is no excuse for intentionally hurting someone.
We have a large ball pit. It is big enough to fit several kids…even I can fit in it. There are 3 places to enter or exit. I heard my little ask 2 times for middle to stop and wait for him. Then, I heard the shriek and pained cry. Middle chose not to wait for little to be out of the way, or chose not to use one of the other exits. Instead, he chose to slam his head into little’s face. He left a large red welt on my boy’s cheek. All I could think is had it been slightly to the left, his nose may have been broken.
I dont think I can continue living this way.
My husband and I are solid. Our relationship great. But I may move out. I dont know how, as I have no job, no money. I have been a SAHM for years. But, I cant keep doing this. I cant wait til he does hurt my little. I will never forgive him or me.
I know he has a traumatic past. But that doesn’t make it ok to behave this way.
Guess what? My past wasnt all sunshine and fucking rainbows either. But I didnt use it as an excuse to be an asshole. I did everything i could to be a good person.
I refuse to accept this as an excuse to behave this way. And I refuse to live in a house being terrorized by a disruptive child. How is this getting worse and not better?
