As ya’ll know I sometimes get email from readers that don’t want their name left in the comments section as it would reveal identity and sometimes they email me their questions. (email@example.com) Today, I’m bringing her question to you since I thought so many would have an opinion on this it could help her or even you.
Problem: The reader has children (not her own) and since they came to live with her she’s found one common issue with the preschooler. He is constantly throwing fits, ignoring and hitting his older sibling. She would like to know how to stop this?
My first suggest, before realizing the age was to send him to counseling and see what the problem was. I know when you blend families sometimes the issue is children don’t want to mind another parent. Only it isn’t just her, he is hitting his siblings.
Have you ever blended families? Maybe you can help this reader out or another reader that may have this issue but doesn’t want to write it here. What would you suggest?
