My son has always been super emotional anytime he gets sick ever since he was little so this is not a new thing that we are experiencing. BUT during last school year now into school year officially after all the Covid isolation I feel like he’s been sick so much and every time it’s the same old story with him just being unreasonable.
We try to be patient with him because he doesn’t really have meltdowns any other time so it’s always right before or while sick and it’s just really exhausting kind of taking its toll on the whole family this go around.
Have tried the gentle approach like we know you don’t feel good and I’m sorry that you don’t feel good but you can’t keep yelling at everyone just lay down and relax and let us know what we can do for you, etc
Anyone else experienced this and have any tips
He is 6 and understands hes sick but seemingly has no control when hes not feeling good. Cries about everything, protests things, gets mad about things he normally wouldn’t.
