    We (my 5 year old brother a I) were out gathering wood for the fireplace and my brother came to me and said "Madison! Your ducklings need to die!" So I said "why?" Then he said "because you love them tooooo much!" And I said "thats no reason for them to need to die!" And he said, "if you dont sell them im gonna kill them" and I went nuts! And tryed to tell my mom and she didnt do a thing about it! She didnt even care! And he also throws rocks at the big ducks for no reason, and sprays them with the hose. Again I tell my mom, and still ..... NOTHING!.... hes driving me insane! And I cant stand him! And he gets me in trouble ALL the time.... Cause he hates my ducks!...... WHY!?

    It sounds like he wants some of the attention you pay to the ducks and other animals. Negative attention is better than none to a child so young. Be patient, I know it is hard. Try asking him to help you with the animals, if he is given a part of their care, and it gets him time with you, he may stop being a pain.

    That just makes me mad, I would say " How would you like to have rocks thrown at you, or squirted with a squrit gun" And if I caught him doing it I would do what he was doing to the ducks to him.

    That would so earn a spanking in my house. Very sorry. Is it the 5 year old that says this? If so they struggle with empathy at times. I have found it useful with my youngest son to turn it to somethign he cares about. He takes something of my daughters and breaks it. I don't actually go break his toy but I will grab his favorite toy and ask him how he would feel if his sister broke it and she could never play with it again. As a generaly rule the lip sticks out and he starts getting upset. Then I ask him how he thinks his sister feels now that he just did that to her toy. As a general rule this helps. If he has consistantly been allowed to act this way he will only get worse. Consistantly instilling that empathy can fix the problem. Takes time. I am a mom and I am not sure why its ok with your mom.

    Quote:I have no idea why its ok with her either. She doesnt really care about my ducks, and only likes her chickens for eggs. Otherwise she hates the darn dinky things. I love her chickens though.
