  • Jerkfaces! Maybe lay down with him and cuddle for a while. Sing to him. This just sucks I'm sure! Good luck! *hugs*

  • Have you tried trimming the trees with shotgun shells? Normally works.
    HAHHAHA jk jk, please don't try that. Remember: It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye.

    Sorry dear, luckily, it'll only be for the night :( *hugs*

  • Aside from staying with him and STAYING CALM and relaxed and not appearing cross or afraid yourself, it's ok to let him scream. He's letting out his physical tensions and easing his fear this way. He'll get over it long before you do though, eh? I'm NOT a fan of fireworks near residential areas. I am the firework monster! Erm, don't mention me to you son :0)
    So sorry he's having such a bad time. Hugs to you both. x

  • Just thought of something though.... does your state allow fireworks? Bc for next time, maybe you could still call the cops.... not for the noise, but for the illegal fireworks, lol!
