I'm not sure what's going on with him but the tantrums are getting out of hand. He's been spending more time at his his bm's house (he's my step son) and everytime he goes over he comes back worse and worse.
We have rules that both he and our 3 year old have to follow. But lately he's been completely disregarding our rules. Which of course makes our three year old think he can also. We've tried time outs. Rewards. Taking things away. Grounding. And no matter what he's just.... Horrible.
Tonight he ran and knocked our 3 year old over after asking him twice not to run inside. So we had him brush his teeth and put him to bed (only 30 mins early). For 45 mins hes been sitting in his room SCREAMING about how he hates his dad, me, our house, our other son, everything. And how he wants to go back to his moms house where she "let's him do whatever he wants." And how he never wants to come back here ever again. Everytimr we go in there to talk to him he screams louder or throws things.... So we've just been letting him CIO alone in his room.
Honestly, at this point we've considered letting him go to her house just for tonight but she doesn't want him (we asked her but she's partying she said).... Which is why he lives with usmost of the time.
Anyways, please offer me advice... Anything. I love him but I can't deal with this especially since its having an effect on our other son. And sadly its making me reconsider TTC right now :/
