ds, frustrated voice "where is my drink?" me "you haven't asked" ds "I have"
He keeps on doing this, i am sat in the same room and know 100% he hasn't asked for anything.
He does it about other things, he will draw a board game and expect me to know certain rules even though he hasn't told me. He wil get frustrated when I don't follow the rules he has in his head but hasn't shared.
It's that 'theory of mind' thing. Yes, my DS is similar, if not so blatant. He starts talking to you about something that he's been thinking about and expects you to know the context. I have to keep asking, "What's the subject?"
Yes DS does this all the time. Especially with games. His sister is forever frustrated when he yells no that is not how it goes and has a full on tantrum. The idea is still in his head only. Also he had a major abscess come up inside his mouth during the course of one day. It must have been horrendously painful. Then all of a sudden at the end of the day he started rolling about and screaming that his mouth hurt and why havent I given him any medicine yet he yelled he has been waiting for ages! I had no idea he was in any pain or ill at all.
My ds will come home from school bothered about something when I ask what is upsetting him he will say you know. I have to explain as I wasnt at school with him I dont know. He thinks I should know even before he tells me.
At dinner this evening he finished eating and said "where's the pudding?', obviously we said 'what pudding?' then he said "we're having pudding tonight", me: "no we're not" ds: "yes we are" - you get the gist. Turns out he'd decided he wanted a pudding this evening and just assumed we knew without him telling us. Inevitably there was then a huge tantrum because we did know, he had asked earlier and we still hadn't made any pudding.
He also does what Ellen's ds does and invariably seems to start a conversation in the middle with no frame of reference, so you have absolutely no clue what he's talking about. Then he gets really cross because you don't understand what he's on about.
Its really annoys me when he knows he needs to take something in or do something for school on a certain day, but fails to actually tell me then blames me because I knew but didn't remind him.
My ds got out of bed in the night came to my room screamed kicked the door threw things on the floor. I asked what was wrong you know whats wrong he said. I explained he hadnt told me. It hurts he said. What hurts ? you know why are you being stupid. I have to explain agian you havent told me were it hurts. He looks at me like hes told me a thousand times and says my throat its my throat you should know. Finally I can deal with sore throat and peace is restored.
