four is old enough to be taught right from wrong and to be scolded for doing something wrong. a little boy the other day was playing with his big brother and they were playing fighting in the pool with foam toys. the little boy picked up a hard toy and threw it at his brother. they laughed but u could tell the teenager was in pain from getting hit in the face and the mom scolded the little boy (not harshly of course bc he was still very young). I hope ur mom said something to ur brother
That is true, if it had been a temper tantrum then yes, it's just the fact that he's four. It's the fact that he felt the need to punch his brother in his stomach, and surely at some point it would have been explained to him what had happened to his big brother, even in really simplistic terms.
It's not even that he's four; he's just a whiny little brat. My fiance had an emergency appendectomy last September and had to spend his recovery time at his parents since I had to finish up school and couldn't stay to take care of him. His mom babysat three of his cousins, the oldest being four and they were all very courteous and concerned about him. Mostly because they wanted him to play with them but whatever. They would go running around the house and slow down to a walk any time they went past him. It was cute :)
@Kikren - I hope that wasn't directed at me because I was only kidding when I said something about Americans being spoilt (hence why there was a :P at the end of it). @Avoidthegirl - My point was that if the kid had just said and whined that the OP had taken his mum away for two days, that would have been because he was four. I mean, obviously this isn't ideal behaviour even then, but children don't always have ideal behaviour, some grow out of it and others unfortunately don't. Obviously the punching the OP in the stomach suggests that the kid is just a brat. Though most of the four year olds I've ever known wouldn't have complained once their parents had explained the severity of the situation their big sibling would've been in if they'd been in the same situation. So yeah, I do agree with you that it's out of line.
While she shouldn't have done that, unless you were medicated for longer than usual, dosed too heavily, or you had an abnormal reaction or hypersensitivity to the medication, you shouldn't have been detoxing from Vicodin after such a short time. It's prescribed sparingly, and you normally wouldn't take it long enough to cause a physical dependency resulting in detox/withdrawl symptoms. If the exceptions I stated didn't apply to you, the detox was probably psychosomatic or just plain ol' pain symptoms. I have enough experience with both to say that prolonged pain can mimic detox. Occasionally, opiates can actually lower your tolerance for pain and cause hypersensitivity to it, but that generally takes much longer to develop, and is most often seen in chronic pain patients. Yes, I'm aware that I know more about this pain/opiate thing than the average 27 year old should. -_-
That brother deserves to be punched in the stomach MUCH harder. Sometimes you can tell when a kid's gonna grow up to be an asshole...
Ow. Whilst I can understand your brother being upset about you 'stealing his mummy', how spoilt is he that he feels that it's ok to punch you in the stomach? Get better soon though, OP.
