My son tried to runaway from home.

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

He was playing with his 1 year old sister and was playing pillow fight. I kept telling him to be gentle, and then full on asked him to just stop, he responded by putting a pillow over her face and holding it there. I told him STOP GET OFF HER you could kill her like that he glared at me and pushed down harder.  I got him off of her told him he was grounded and to go the living room. He got mad stormed out room said I'm running away no one loves me. Unlocked the front door and ran outside. I am in a nightgown cause I just had surgery, so throw on a dressing gown and put her in the crib and try to find him. Husband saw him run outside the front but just let him go cause husband said he was doing laundry.  I am hobbling down the road to get my son and see my husband come out thinking my husband would get him slow down husband let the dog out so dog is running lose. I get the dog, who is slower than son, son is 5 houses down husband is with son husband keeps whispering things to son, and I don't know what. While I am in the process of getting the dog a member of my church pulls up and tries to have a chat.. I tell them I can't really talk now try to get the dog, they pull off in a huff I grab dog and stumble back in with wound bleeding.  I come in and ask son what he wanted to run away from, a family that loves him, the endless toys he has, the over flowing closet he has, the 3 meals he gets a day. I don't get what he is so displeased about.  He runs out the door again angry and upset. I try hobbling after him wound is getting more opened husband gets mad hurls car keys at me and says DRIVE go get him if that's faster. I can't drive, I can barely get in the car. I yell and plead for son to come back he turns around and starts coming husband is yelling at me screaming at me then tells son he is never allowed around his sister or his mother. I have my daughter, my husband has locked us the bed room and son is out in the living room with my mother and my husband and I am at a loss for what to do.

OH GREAT the bleeding won't stop now.. I wonder how long it will take to clot, cause I'm pretty sure I tore something while chasing my son.

You need to work or better get out of a marriage where your husband is this controlling. Your sons behavior is reflective of what he is learning at home. How proud will you be if he locked his wife and child up? I'm really not trying to be a bitch here, but your mil is there and has no problem with this? Recover from your surgery the best you can and take your kids and run. I'd be calling the cops myself. But that's just me. The door would probably been broke down, etc.

I can't even deal with the husband issue right now.. just worried about my son and how to fix this. I think son is acting out and feeling unloved.. but I do so much for him, give him so much I don't know what else to do.

Your husband has locked you in your bedroom??? You have bigger problems than your son running away. Jmot.

Oh highly enlighten one. Please tell me what to do. I am terrified that my son will act out with any further correction. Every time there is a no he wants to run away, every time there is a restriction. My husband is a different matter all together.

 Your husband said it's your fault your son was running away? What part of the fact that your son was trying to suffocate his baby sister doesn't your husband understand??? Your son should be the one in his room without any toys etc...until he understands the seriousness of what he did...almost kill his sister and cause your surgical wound to open up and bleed!  Your husband needs to think through what just happened and grow up...he or your mother should have been doing what you were ...including trying to get your son off his baby sister in the first place. The fact your surgical wound is now open puts you at risk for a serious infection if it doesn't get seen and taken care of quickly. I'd see if someone I can trust can get ahold of the local police and have them do a welfare check on you and your daughter. Let them know hubby locked you in your room.

Please call police and or ambulance now. This is not healthy for your children. That's what you need to work on first.

Kids learn from those around them...just saying. Sounds like your husband could be part of the root problem

Oh hell no! You husband sounds like an ass. If your body is not healed enough that its bleeding, you should laying down. Your husband being upset over you sending your son out due to him trying to smother his sister, absolutely ridiculous. I'm sorry your going through that. Please check that wound, and go to the ER if you can. If its ok, lay down, please. God luck Momma.
