Im back Hi my son is now 5yrs old, still doing wonderfully at school, no out bursts school see the perfect child he can be. At home is a different story. Starts the moment he wakes. To be clear here he is angry and annoyed at me right from the start just because I wake him for school. Other times he can be fine and then while walking to school he will start. Like yesterday, I turned back and said to him. come on mate to which he screamed at me shut up, just shut up, dont tell me anything! Then another occasion me, dont hit your brother. If you hit your brother you will go to your room Matt yeah well I will cut your head off then I felt sick to my stomach he has said a few things like this now. Same thing if we ask him to clean up, hop off the computer, tell him its bed time. Basically anything we ask of him or tell him to do he is like this, only to us though. He has still never been in trouble at school. So what the heck are we doing wrong? I try to be so gentle and sweet to him hoping that will work. But seriously the nicer I am to him the more he seems to be like this. So I try and be relaxed but thats not working. I never had to try and be anything with my daughter, she just was .so deep down I know its not us, but then I blame us because he isnt doing this **** in fount of anyone else or to anyone else. Oh no well he did have a huge meltdown in fount of his friends mother, the boy was taunting him over and over and he lost it. But who wouldnt. Sometimes I now find myself wondering if we should have smacked him, gee I never did because I didnt want my child to show aggression or be aggressive but he is anyway. I cant figure out if there is something more or he is just loving intimidating us and if so why, why the heck would a child be like that?
