I have two girls and one boy, so I'm a little lost when it comes to my son. I keep hearing that old saying "boys will be boys", I know that boys are rougher than girls but lately my son has been extremly aggresive with his sisters, mainly his youner sister. Monday I had him home from school because he had been sick on Sunday, while I was in the bathroom getting ready for work my easy child came in and told me bubby had hit her. No big surprise till I looked over and seen my shower curtian, edge of sink and her whole left side of her head covered in blood. When I asked Bub(difficult child 2) what he had hit her with all he would tell me is "in sink", I called my husband home from work(to watch P while I took easy child to ER) and started going through everything in the sink, when I pulled out the steak knife, he pointed and said that's it! Once I got her to the ER and they got her all cleaned up the marks were very small but would match that of a serrated knife(small holes in a straight line). Although she is fine, and told that head wounds blead a lot, even small ones. They told me that boys will be boys. I admitted my difficult child 1 to a Psyc hospital for threating to stab us with a knife, but now that it's a boy it's just cause boys are rougher? psychiatric Dr has agreed to see but can't get him in till June. I'm at a loss, we've never had to deal with anything like this and I don't know what to do. Now we are back to keeping all the knives completly put up out of reach from anyone(I use a ladder to get them). Someone with boys please tell me is this something I should just expect from my son? We know that he has emotional problems and is seeing a councler ever two weeks because of behavoir problems, just don't have a diagnosis and they act like it's normal behavior. easy child seems to be his punching post, and we are despritly trying to get him to stop. Bub can be a very loving, and protective brother to his sisters, but can also be very agressive to them. Help please, I thought I had seen the worst with difficult child 1, but I was wrong.
