My son gets highly irritated with his siblings, making them cry all the time.
I am constantly yelling at my son to be nice to his sisters. It is wearing me out. He is a really good kid, very loving and smart, but he is very controlling and frustrated. If his sisters cry or sing, he can't stand it. I feel really bad for them because we are a very musical family.
My son is only 7 and wows everybody when he plays the drums. My girls like to sing and are good, but to him it's like torture. He will beg me to make them stop and if we are in the car, the singing will actually bring him to tears and next thing I know he's turning around and hitting them making them cry. I try to be understanding, but it's just not fair to them.
If my son is playing a video game and anybody walks in front of him or if his sisters stop to watch, he will go into a full out fit and rage comes over him. He says it distracts him, but really it's not a big deal. At least to me. I feel so sorry for my girls, he is constantly making them cry because he is so frustrated with them or they are not doing something right. When he is out of the house it's like they are totally different children, it's almost a sigh of relief. I feel bad saying that, but the conflict between my son and his siblings is very tiring.
I try to be understanding because I know it's his SPD. For example, if they play the drums he cannot stand it, and alot people just think he is jealous, but I believe, because they don't know how to play them very well, it's like nails on chalkboard to him. Can anyone relate?
