difficult child asked me this morning why I had not fixed the glass on some paintings he smashed a couple of months ago. I said because I did not want them broken again. He said that he was not going to break things anymore, or get mad and yell. He said when he gets frustrated he will leave and go to the basement where his room is until he calms down. I had a hard time holding off the tears until I got to work. The things that frustrate him are still going to frustrate him. He will still have a difficult time managing them. But, he is committed to improvement!!!!!!!!!!!!! Such a huge step! difficult child in training had a rough week. On Thursday he carried some frustrations to school and told the vice principle that he was going to get 4 checks today. When he gets this way she knows there is no reasoning with him and the best approach is to fill out the form for the four checks. husband complained that they were for silly things, until I explained why. On Friday difficult child in training decided he was going for an in school suspension and got it. He gets this week off and we are hoping to work on the frustrations.
