luv2read Posted August 1, 2008 Share Posted August 1, 2008 We have 3 dc. The youngest is 7 and oldest just turned 16. The two of them verbally bicker back and forth. I send them to their rooms, give them chores, send one outside etc. Dh and I try to nip it in the bud the minute it starts. They have never physically hurt each other. Can you imagine that much age difference and not getting along. The 7 is a ds and the 16 is a dd. About an hour ago, I was in the kitchen and heard a loud scream. Dd was pulling ds across the carpet to his room. That was like 10 feet. She said he was laughing at first. NOt for sure what happened next but my guess was he told her to stop. He said he did but she said he didn't. So, he got mad and picked up a big wooden block (support beam) from his brio train set and threw it at her. It hit her on the forehead just right and turned in to a bump the size of 1/2 a golf ball. I mean it looks really, really bad. She has ice on it. I spanked him which honestly was a gut reaction that I did not even think about. I had him go outside and now he is taking a nap. How would you handle this? I'm trying to figure out do I take the train set out of his room ? What do I do? Nothing like this has ever happened and I'm at a loss.
