89. Feel Like You’re Neglecting Your Other Kids?

It’s heartbreaking when your other kids tell you they’re trying to have patience, 

But they secretly want to punch their sister for her overwhelming meltdowns… 

And then your mind starts to race with all the questions….

How did it come to this? 

How is aggression now an acceptable solution in my home?

Haven't I been spending ALL this time trying to teach my HSC that it isn’t?

Why do my other kids feel like the only way to get her to stop is to whack her?

How do they feel knowing that this isn’t really an answer– trapped because they would never do it? 

Angry and powerless?



All of the above? 

It’s hard enough living under the weight of the meltdown cycle,

But the guilt you carry for feeling like you are neglecting your other child’s emotional needs is exceptionally profound. 

It’s not like you can tell your kid,

“Sorry your sister keeps freaking out, I don’t know how to make it stop.”

It feels like both options are wrong.

     A. Should you chastise your HSC for feeling their big feelings (albeit unhealthily)? 

     B. Or tell your non-HSC to shove their emotions and keep tiptoeing around the meltdowns like you do?

If this were a test,

Congrats. Both answers here ARE wrong. But that’s because you haven’t seen option C yet.

     C. Break the meltdown cycle altogether.


It is absolutely possible to do,

Your children’s sibling relationship can be spared from disappointment and heartbreak,

And YOU can stop playing referee.
