My 7 year old just had an epic meltdown & when I asked him to sit on the bed with me & my younger (4yr old son) & explain exactly what was bothering him-long after the meltdown. His reply was ' I just really don't like my brother, he laughs at me, he talks non stop, everyone loves him & I don't even like him. I wish he was never born'. He would've continued but I stopped him asap. The worst part is I couldn't punish him because I asked him to tell the truth & being so literal about everything e gave me the truth😢 My little one replied 'you just wrecked my heart'. Of all the crap that has come with his conditions, this outburst has really shaken me. He's booked to see the psych next week so I'm top of all of that, just wanted to get out my frustration & sadness.

That sounds so difficult, for all of you.
I hope you're all okay. Or, as okay as you can be.

I have no words of wisdom but just wanted to give you and both your kids a virtual hug!

It's horrible isn't it? My youngest says things like this about her older siblings all the time, it hurts them I can tell by looking at them but they try to be tough and have a smart come back but I know it upsets them because it kills me.
What worries me most is how much damage it does to the relationships between them all.
Anyway just wanted you to know you aren't alone and that it really does suck.

"Hey, come here a second," my mum said as she replaced the book in my hands with a wooden spoon covered in what I prayed was red sauce.
