Here is the synopsis:
We have 2 young boys, 5yrs and 1 and a half. Our 5 yr old was running around one side of a corner in our house, and our other one was running around that same corner coming from the other side. Well, you know what happens next. They collide and bump heads. I rush over to help. My toddler was hit on the forehead with my older son's tooth. My toddler is crying from pain, and my older son is in pain as well but he notices he is bleeding and gets really scared and starts to panic. This is understandable considering only 2 weeks ago he fell face first on the tile floor and knocked both of his top front teeth loose. The dentist couldn't help and had to pull them both out. This was very traumatic for my son.
So they are both screaming and I am trying to comfort both of them the best I can. DH comes over to help but all he does is start yelling at the older one to stop crying. continued

His exact words were "you have to stop crying now!" I immediately shot back, "NO!! He does not have to stop crying! He is scared and in pain!" My husband than completely left the room and has been sulking on the couch ever since. Leaving me to attempt to comfort both kids, than bathe them, than read and get them to sleep. He usually helps out with this process. He has not spoken to me since (this was a few hours ago) and is STILL pouting on the couch. Should I go apologize for "yelling" at him? I do NOT feel like I should. Yelling at a little kid in pain is not going to help anyone, it just exacerbates the problem and make the one crying feel like he is wrong for crying. Should I ignore him until he realizes that he was being a jerk? Or should I go confront him and tell him he is acting like a brat and that he was wrong for being a jerk and then deserting me when I needed him to help?
