My 6yr old has asked out of the blue if I've ever felt like I loved something so much I want to destroy it. The first couple of times I didn't pay it much attention but tonight, a tired night, he was physically upset about this. Telling me he loves his stuffed animals so much he wants to cut their heads off. My husband wants me to ignore it as he feels that I'd nurture continued antics by giving him attention at these times. I'm torn. On one hand he could be doing just want my husband is thinking but on the other I can't help to worry that worry there is a deeper routed issue going on.
Has anyone experienced this? He is our oldest so it's new territory for me.
