Carson had a rough afternoon yesterday. Thursdays are MAJOR transition day. And it's hard for both Carson and I. On Thursdays my 4 step kids come over. And Carson's sister and little brother come over. So there are 7 kids in our house for the next 4-5 days. So last night after a huge tantrum ("I hate my life") over having to give the TV remote up to StepDad, I sent him to his room. "Go sit on your bed and calm down". I usually do this when he gets "out of control"--which happens SO quickly that I find it HARD to catch them before they escalate. This was at 7PM. He went to sleep within 15 minutes. I decided to let him sleep. When I tucked the other two into bed, I tried to rouse him enough to give him his medications. I could NOT get him to wake up enough to take them. He would sit up but not really be awake. So, we skipped medications last night (I know, Bad Mommy). Today his behavior has been horrible. Growling. Yelling. Kicking. Over the smallest of things. A few minutes ago he came into the living room without a shirt on. I asked him to go put his shirt back on. He told me he was hot. I told him to get a short sleeved shirt. Carson is a bit of a nudie. He like to run around in his underwear. So we had to make it a rule that EVERYONE be dressed in the house. He refused. I again asked him to get a shirt on. As he walked by his little brother, sitting on the floor, Carson kicked him. I sent him to his room to calm down. He ran to his room screaming that he hated everyone. It was all their fault he always got in trouble. He screamed at me "They all LIKE it when I get in trouble". I said to him "Then what do you think you should do?" I was sorta thinking of something along the lines of "Control myself, walk away, tell an adult, take deep breaths, count to 15..." And he said, very angry "KILL them!" He has never said this before. Very shocking to me. In the last few weeks he has called a teacher a "8itch", another teacher a "jerk" and "shot the finger" at another one. He has called students and sibling names. But never adults. And he sure has never said he wanted to "kill someone". And I don't suspect he really WOULD or attempt it. But it still was scary. (His potty talk has increased too. I know boys are gross but he wants to talk about poop, farts, burps, peeing and butts/boobs and "privates" ALL. THE. TIME.) Afterwards I talked to him about being angry. And that sometimes his anger was OK but it isn't OK to hurt someone with your hands or your words. He stayed in his bed for 20 minutes. Then came out hugging and apologizing to everyone. Comments? Advice? LOL I love you people.
