Elliott and Emmett got into another fight this morning. Elliott got shoved and was coming downstairs to get help. Emmett was afraid and was doing everything he could to stop Elliott from telling me what happened, including putting his hands around Elliott’s throat.
When Elliott got downstairs, Emmett ran down the steps, completely freaking out and punching himself in the face.
I know kids will be kids but this doesn’t feel right to me and I’m concerned.
Elliott’s fine but Emmett bent his glasses by hitting himself in the face and that scares me.
I don’t know how to pull everyone out of this and into a better place. Everyone is beyond stressed out and life doesn’t seem to want to cut us any slack or take a break from the constant onslaught of crap it keeps heaving our way.
After talking to both Emmett and Elliott about what happened, I still don’t know what really triggered this event.
Perhaps they are both overstimulated from Easter already? Maybe they are upset because Gavin’s not here? Most likely, it’s a combination of many things most of which are outside of our ability to control.
Do your kids ever lash out at each other? How do you handle it?
