By crying over wasted milk - 14/8/2019 17:00 - United States - Monterey Park
Today, in a fit of jealousy, my 10 year-old unplugged my freezer and lifted the lid before bed. It’s over 80°F in my garage. Now, my entire supply of breast milk is destroyed. Not only do I not have enough stored to feed my own baby, I was also donating to local hospitals. FML

Your 10 year old is an asshole. Lots of kids act out, only a small number intentionally destroy valuable things. Good luck with that, you're probably raising a sociopath.

Kids can be jealous but to destroy your baby’s food...it’s like saying he wants the baby to die of starvation since he knowingly destroyed it’s food...(and the food of other babies since you were donating)

You need to discipline him and explain why a new baby doesn’t take away from him if you want to stop this. That’s not normal jealously.

Spoiled milk is poisonous. Perhaps he had planned to plug it back in if she hadn't noticed. After all - he left the door open so that they would warm up and spoil much faster.

Or, you know, he's only 10 so he's not quite yet creative enough to murder someone like that...

Ugh, I know how awful that feels. Losing breast milk is beyond sad. And I also have a strong willed daughter who does crazy crap on purpose. Parenting them is hard. You aren’t alone, OP.

And physically abusing a kid only teaches it to use physical abuse when emotionally unstable. There are better ways of handling the situation but I definitely agree therapy with a seriously good child psychologist is necessary in this case.

I'd ground the kid for about two months. And use that time to make sure he understands WHY he can't play video games or access the Internet without parental controls.
