How would you handle SS10 bullying DS8? It can get physical or verbal. I'm seeing DS is obviously scared of SS when I recently asked what happened to his eye? He said he didn't know. The last time a physical altercation happened was earlier this year maybe when SS for some reason punched DS in the stomach...we were obviously infuriated and DH had him.punished for a long time. He was almost shipped out...I thought we were done with this.
I've heard verbal coercion and small nit picking here and there and DS would talk back and also tell on SS at times but just this past Monday again he's been hit by SS but with DS folder. He goes in his bookbag and threw it at him. Idk how that escalated but it's been a long time from.the last time.and DH was angry. He said u cannot bully anyone and especially not your own brother. So he's punished for a long while again. How in the heck would you handle this? We also spoke to DS to not be afraid or him etc. Of.course therapy is an option but at the moment we don't have the means to get him there. Very soon it may be possible.
He also mentioned he wanted to live with his mom that night he heard his punishment. Dh told him it doesn't work that way. He's primarily with us and see the mom eow. This past weekend somehow her daughter from another dad, after nearly 2yrs, has seen them. So ss is getting nostalgia I'm sure and bm and feeding bs that they're a family again and only missing him om.sure. bc he's never said he's wanted his mom. He's actually said the opposite for yrs bc he's been afraid of her. Now that he's hardly around her I believe he's forgotten just how dangerous she is....she's lost custody if all her kids to their dads bc of her terrible past...so we of course said that's not happening but how would you handle this?
