Jaxon has been having some serious fits lately. He's 4 and he throws more fits than Henry who is 2.
When he gets mad, Jaxon says things like, "I don't want to live with you," "I don't love you," "You're lying," "You don't love me," "That's not fair," "You're not my mommy," and on and on with all kinds of stuff. I don't know where he gets this stuff because Devin and I certainly never have said anything like the previous quotes to each other ever. He doesn't even understand what he's saying half the time. It's like we raising a teenager in a miniature body.
I know he doesn't mean the things he says and I don't take them personally, but when he has these drawn out fits it wears on me. I get past the point of knowing what to do about it. It's like there's no reasoning with him because he just argues back with some of the lines quoted above. These fits are hard to manage! His fits don't happen very often, it's just that when they do, they seem to go on and on. And of course, if he is hungry or tired they are worse.
I just don't know if this is normal. My Oma (grandma) said I didn't say thing like that or act crazy-out-of-control-mad when I was little. I know Devin banged his head on the floor when he was younger, but I don't think that continued much past age 2. I wonder if Jaxon is more difficult than most kids his age or are we just lousy parents?
Where did this sweet boy go?
