I'm at my wit's end with this latest behavior from my 4 yo son-- all my old tricks aren't working anymore :) The problem is two fold
- he's been saying the word 'stupid' a lot. Sometimes he'll use it to insult someone, like stupid mama! or she's so stupid... and sometimes he'll just say it randomly.
-When he's upset, he's been saying just horrible things-- like "I don't love you anymore", "You are always the problem", "I want you to go away", "get out of my house" etc... most of this is directed at his sister (nearly 3). Honestly, I can tell this is coming from the heart, and we all say things when we are upset. But he just goes on and on and on... at this point his 'venting' is really getting to his sister.
I really don't know how to handle either issue-- I feel like most of my parenting skills are geared towards babies and toddlers, and I"m completely lost with this 'new' 4yo son.
