Ouch! ..........

He is only 15% of where he should be for his age and weight but he is nothing but a muscle , very very strong , he can pick up his sister who is bigger than him and out climb a monkey on cocaine BUT he WILL NOT EAT . All he wants is junk food , I will get him a hardees or carl jr '' depending on where you live'' butter biscuit in the morning but he does not like to eat regular food and most time he will just go hungry if he cant have junk food .
I kid you not , he can be on the floor and with you standing , he will climb up and hang off your head .
I think he would be in heaven if he could climb a mountain , eat starburst and throw rocks off the top of the mountain into a pond .
That sounds very much like my nephew. Scary like him. The scariest part? Everything in the junk food group has corn in it. Freaking everything. Those fast food companies put corn sugar in freaking everything because it is addictive- and poisonous.

Allergy drugs? Stay the hell away from them. The only way to effectively treat allergies is to eliminate the things one is allergic to and then inoculate for those things. Over time, with this approach, a person might become acclimated to the things they are allergic to. But that does not equate a "cure".

Tell him he can't play with the bow and arrow in the house.

He was actually just trying to unnock the arrow to put it away. It has quite a tight notch on the end of the arrow.

Major teaching moment there.

How many of the basic (gun) safety rules were broken in that one accident? Don't punish Sue for it (I hope you didn't), but teach him with it.

Every last one of them. Loaded. Muzzle awareness. (Notionally) finger on the trigger.

I'm glad it wasn't his pellet rifle. But he's way more aware with it (right after this incident, he took his pellet rifle into his bedroom, and I watched him pull the tiny little bolt back to make sure it was empty).

I think it's more because he has had the same attitude toward the bow as I do. "It's just a toy". And it's impossible to have a negligent discharge with it. Well, now we better.

Only my son... could have an ND with a toy bow, sting a man's back and make him drop his coffee. Priceless.

Nah, I didn't get on him too bad. It was along the lines of, "DAMN!! What the hell was that!?!" And then a stern discussion that if it'd been anything more dangerous I could've been killed instead of just s stung.

He's a real emotional kid, and the thought that he could've killed daddy with that kind of carelessness and a different "weapon" really made an impact.

A child's life is full of teaching moments every day, the difficult part of parenting is not letting them go to waste while at the same time not being overbearing about it. Great job trip! His going in to check his pellet rifle shows you used exactly the right amount of attention to the issue.

I got tired of my Dad's teaching moments and just quit listening...
