Thoughts? Oponions? SS hitting
SS12 had his annual physical two days ago. My sister is a nurse at the pediatrician SS goes to and happened to be the nurse taking care of him( SS12 knows her well) DH and BM both went to the appointment as they always do. The Dr and BM were taking about SS12 needing a vaccination something SS12 I guess did not know he was going to get. SS12 who is a total whinny baby started to cry and pitch a fit about getting a simple shot. This is a 12 year old. After much drama my sister gave him the shot and BM went to hug him(This is the reason this kid is a baby I would have dragged him out embarrassed if it was my 12 year old) When BM went to hug him SS12 punched her in the shoulder! WHY? Because BM was the one to tell the DR " Lets get the shot done today so its done with". What did BM do when SS12 hit her? NOTHING just backed away and said "ok I won't touch you". Then again as everyone was walking out BM went to put her hand on SS12 back,again to comfort him and he punched her again! Again BM just backed up.
First am I wrong to think a 12 yr should be able to take a normal vaccination without crying and pitching a huge fit???
Second I felt DH should have said something to SS about hitting his mom. Yes BM is a bitch and I would love to hall off and punch her too BUT as SS father I think DH should have stepped in and at least say what SS did was wrong but DH just stood there. Oponions?
Now my sister said it was not a all out punch more half punch/half push. But still SS hit/pushed BM twice.
