My 3 year old keeps doing... odd things. Dangerous things without the intent of hurting if that makes any sense.
I have to make sure I keep everything out of his reach. He will open any lotion, sunscreen, medicine, ANYTHING and put it on his skin. He has never done this before now. He would always just bring it to me. And of course he'll do anything to get ahold of them as well.
The other day I caught him trying to choke himself with his own hands. He was sitting there playing with his geotrax and all of the sudden he reached up, grabbed his neck, and started choking himself with both hands. He thinks it's funny. I'm terrified to let him out of my sight!
I don't usually leave him alone with my baby girl. Well, he was playing in the living room and I was using the bathroom while my baby girl slept in her swing in the play room. Well, he got really quiet so I found him as quick as I could. He was in the playroom smashing my daughter with a pillow. Once again, not intending to hurt her, just because he thinks it's fun.
MAJOR trouble for that one. My daughter was fine btw. Apparently she thought it was funny as well because she was laughing SO hard when I moved that pillow and picked her up. Yeah, scare Mommy to death, just great.
We have sat down and talked about how we need to breathe to live. I've had him hold his breath as long as he can and then asked him what it would feel like if he couldn't breathe after that. We talked about how things over faces or around our necks can make it so we can't take that breath. We talked about how we can't breathe underwater (just trying to cover my bases). He was really upset and apologized to his sister because he didn't want anything bad to happen to her.
But I'm still afraid. What if he does something like this when he's supposed to be sleeping?
Anybody else delt with this?
