with his terrible potty mouth & mean words? I don't really know where he heard this stuff. He goes to daycare & preschool so it could have been from either one. Some of it he has heard/learned from my soon-to-be ex-husband who is still living with us. He says all of this stuff while giggling hysterically, he thinks it's all hilarious. For instance, "stinky butt", "smack in my face", "hit myself in the head", "bla bla bla". I can't think of all of them right now. He can associate pretty much anything with a "smack in the face", I don't know why this is so funny but it's irritating. Then when he gets in trouble, a switch goes off. He has a raging anger that is hard to get back under control. He doesn't exactly destroy anything or hurt anyone in his rage but it's his mouth. "I hate you, i hate you, i hate you..." over and over. SCREAMING at the top of his lungs. He runs away from me every time he gets in trouble which ticks me off way more cuz he'll either run around our house (the bottom floor goes in a circle) or hides under our big bed upstairs & I can't get him out. He balls up his fists & tenses up all his muscles & screams. When he does this stuff, it's like one thing after another. He will get punished & then he screams stuff at me and gets punished for that, then he runs away & gets in even more trouble. I mean, I don't know how to control it!! It quickly gets out of control & it's usually over something so stupid. Anyone have any idea of how to reason with this kid? And how to stop the potty mouth??
Edited to add- He also wants to associate guns & shooting & killing with everything he plays with. We built a lego house today & his cowboy lego man had to keep beating down the door because "he's gonna kill them". He doesn't say it in a creepy way, just like it's funny. I don't know if this is normal or not....Answer Question
