There’s something that I haven’t touched on because I’ve been too overwhelmed with everything. That’s something is Emmett’s recent aggressive behavior. Actually, it’s more like the return of Emmett’s aggressive behaviors.
For those of you new to our story, Emmett used to be extremely aggressive.
When I say extremely aggressive, I mean Lizze was physically assaulted multiple times a day. Emmett would hit, bite, kick and scratch anyone when he was set off.
I can’t tell you how many things were destroyed during these aggressive outbursts. Personally, I lost both an Xbox 360 and a PS3. He took a chunk out of our old TV throwing things at it.
These were all material things and don’t really matter but it still sucks.
About 2-ish years ago, the behavior sorta subsided.
We’ve always attributed that to him gaining his ability to speak. Not being able to speak and/or express oneself, is something I can’t even imagine.
Anyway, these behaviors have recently returned and both Lizze and Elliott are the primary targets. Tonight was a really bad night for Emmett. I don’t even remember what he was upset about but he just lost it. Oh wait.. Lizze caught him bullying Elliott and when she stopped him, he freaked out.
Lizze was essentially attacked and Emmett hit and kicked her.
I got him pulled aside, tried to calm him down and was eventually successful but he was really frustrated. I wish I knew what was going on because I would love to help him.
If there is any small consolation it would be that this behavior is not happening at school.
While that’s a big positive, it’s little comfort to Elliott and Lizze, when they are getting hurt.
Emmett is an amazing kid and something is causing this but I just have no idea what it is. He’s really stressed out and very easily frustrated right now.
Maybe the stress in the house is getting to him…….
