Today difficult child 1 was chocking difficult child 2. difficult child 1 had to be a shadow for the rest of the day. He hates that and was hitting himself on the forehead and kicking himself. I sent him to cool down. While in his cool down spot he told me that he wants to kill himself. This is a first for me/him. I know that others on this here deal with this daily. What do you say? After he had calmed down I talked to him about how he would miss husband's birthday on Sunday and how fun that is going to be. It wasn't a long conversation and was upbeat. I didn't want to dwell on it or make it a bigger issue. If I do I know he'll start saying that to get a reaction out of me.
