Hello there everybody!!!
This is Enrique's Mom and I have a question that may sound kind of ODD?!
Enrique will go into these high speed moments when his little brother wakes up and comes out to play or if Daddy comes home. We feel that he is just really excited to see them because he hasn't seem them for so long.....(Like 2 or 3 hours). However my husband had a thought that maybe the high speed running around, throwing things at Silas or us, laughing - hysterically - could actually be because there is new dimention in the room that he can't deal with in himself.
Now the major problem here is the exact time he is doing this I can't whisk him off to the playroom to burn off some of these three E's because I have 1. another child to deal with, and 2. we are about to eat supper or else get ready to put him to bed and playroom time isn't on the cards right now!
He has soooo much energy and just goes, goes ,goes but this example I'm writing about seems a little too much. He seems to go into a sort of pain free, hearing free, place where what ever I might say or suggest falls apon deaf ears. He can do the most amazing things that I'm sure would hurt but obviously they don't!!! The activity must just feel REALLY GOOD!!!! Constant jumping off high things, the table the top of the couch, down the stairs, or he'll slide BUMP BUMP BUMP down the stairs on his stomach (OUCH?) over and over and over.
Apart from keeping him away from Silas to limit the frustrations (on Silas's part - he's 2 1/2 ) how can i help Enrique realize that everything will be alright.?
Any hints and tips would be welcome!!!
Thanks a mil'
