I have a 3-year-old SS. I've seen neither his mom, nor my husband punish him. He's allowed to bite, kick, pinch, slap, head butt, cuss, climb up stuff, jump out of high places. He's not made to sleep in his own bed, I am made to give up my bed for him to sleep with his father at night. Which puts me sleeping on the couch or in a toddler bed. He chokes our cat. Tells me that he hates me and wants to "squish you in the garbage truck and make you dead". That is a direct quote from the monster!! I try my best to be there to punish him.. Where I am trying to compensate for 2 parents that don't punish him and just let him run wild, his dad says I am being mean to him because I pick and pick at everything to try to catch him up to speed on right and wrong. I don't spank him, because both parents have asked me not to, I am only allowed to give him a time out.. But as soon as I turn my back, he jumps up and runs off. His dad lets him do it, and his mom does as well. It's gotten to the point that if either parent asks me to watch him while they have stuff to do, I tell them no. To find someone else. He's the topic of mine and hubby's arguments 90% of the time, and I feel like the child is putting a wedge in our marriage. He's slowly driving me nuts. I want to run off sometimes and just be by myself. I'm in counselling and was put on medication for depression because this kid is just that bad off. WHAT DO I DO????????????????????
