A 4 year old threatens to stab a 5 year old and actually goes after a knife!
IDK what to do with this kid anymore. One of the children that I keep is a 4 year old boy. I have always had behavioral problems from him, usually just fits and things of that nature. I have kept him for about a year now. This week, however, things have escalated to a much more serious degree. A few days ago, he got angry bc my son took a toy from him, so he scratched his face ALL UP. Most of the scratches faded, but there are still a few on his cheeks. The next day, he slams my son's head into the wall. Then the day after that, he hauls off and kicks the shit out of my son RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME! Well, yesterday, I sent Lance (my 4 year old son) to spend the night with my dad. Kind of as a treat for him as he LOVES to go over there, so he is not here today.
Earlier today, I go into the bathroom, for obvious reasons. Then a 5 year old girl that I keep comes banging on the door hysterically screaming not 5 seconds after I had been in there. She is saying something about "B" (we will call him this for privacy reasons)going into the kitchen to get a knife! Well, I come running out of the bathroom just in time to see B come running out of the kitchen. I walked over to him and asked him what he was doing and he wouldn't talk to me. He just kind of stared at me with a dumbfounded look. I ended up sending him to time out where he proceeded to throw the biggest fit known to man. I mean, if you did not know this kid, you would have thought he was possessed. Then after he calmed down I brought him over to talk to me. Asked him again, what happened. And this was his response "She made me angry, so I said i was gonna get a knife and push it into her face."
WHAT DO I DO???????
(I have already contacted his mother and filled her in and plan on letting the girls mother know about the incident upon pick up today)
