comment Why does my son (5) suddenly provoke me although everything seemed to be perfect before?
it is highly probable that our son is a highly sensitive person (see my edit) which explains at least some of this behavior.

comment Is it a parent's responsibility to remember their 6 year-old child's coat as they leave their home to go to school?
despite the unfortunate example with the cold, the idea behind the answer is not bad IMHO: if there are larger consequences of the error (forgetting something) which concern the parents (see the amount of "risk" in Stephies answer), it might make more sense for the parents to intervene than in less severe cases.

comment How to deal with extreme misbehavior of younger siblings?
@Katryn: you're welcome [if you find answers useful, you can upvote them with the arrows on the left] and I wish you all the best and quick progress! Does this counselling also concern the younger children, or is this your next step?

comment How to get a 15 yr old started with a computer?
My son also was interested in computers very early and at the age of 6 discovered the possibilities of Microsoft Word (typing letters, changing color, font, etc.). So I'm sure, a 15 year old will learn this quickly too. I assume there will be no internet connection?! IMHO that's the greatest risk. My son wanted to watch an origami tutorial on youtube, tried to view it a second time and 2 clicks later watched some news report of a burning house/accident/ fire fighters, which was not age appropriate at all. I'm happy he came to me instead of continuing watching that..

comment How to deal with extreme misbehavior of younger siblings?
Dear Katryn,I'm sorry to hear that you are in such a difficult situation! Did you already try to get professional help (family counselling/psychologist)? Maybe there are also other institutions which support families in difficult circumstances like yours - in which country do you live? If I understand correctly, you have also older children, were they also so "problematic" in their early years, or is it just the two younger ones? Did your husband really leave you ("just") because of the misbehaving children? That sounds quite strange to me and surely makes the situation unbearable for you. :-(
