DS is 3. We are working on getting an OT evaluation for him for spectrum issues including SPD and NOS.
I get hurt by him at least twice a day. He throws trains at me hitting me in the head, he gets wild and bangs into my hips or my pregnant belly with his head, or he will bite really hard, or push really hard.
Tonight I was singing him to sleep and he was wildly trying to calm down. He throws his head around like a cannonball and most times it just happens to miss me. Tonight it hit me really hard in the jaw. I'm ticked off. I'm so tired of being hurt unexpectedly by this kid. I have a huge bruise and a headache. I yelled at him really angrily "I don't like to get hurt!" and left the room. I left him crying with his Dad in the room. I know I hurt his *very sensitive* feelings, but I'm so tired of being beat up even if it was an accident.
Does this happen to other moms out there? I usually give him calm down time in a special corner when he's purposely hurting people. How is one supposed to react when it's an accident?
