I don't know if I have mentioned before that E's teacher writes me up a weekly report, as per my request, to let me know what has set off his meltdowns and all. She is very detailed in them and I really appreciate it because I take these to both his counselor and his Occupational Therapist (OT) so that they can work with him and give me ideas on how to approach some of the issues that he is facing at school. Last week's letter included that he told his teacher that he 'didn't want to live anymore' after he pushed another child down and he cried so hard because he felt so bad afterwards. He is *very* dramatic and I told her that he has said similar stuff at home when he has been sent to his room or time out. I just try not to feed into his drama and tell him that we love him and that we want him with us and there are other ways to express his frustration than that. His letter this week he told his teacher that he wanted to kill himself and started punching himself when he was unable to lie still during nap time. I honestly think that he does not really understand what he is saying and the real meaning behind it. I talked to his counselor about it and she feels the same and talked to him about different ways to express his frustrations. His Occupational Therapist (OT) thinks that it's because he is frustrated that he seems to fail at so many things like social situations and being able to be still like the other kids. She told me to make a list or give him cards with other things that he could say instead of that and also some conversation starters for him for his friends. He doesn't really know how to interact appropriately with the other kids and usually ends up invading their personal space and making noises and annoying them. I feel so frustrated and my heart hurts for him because he really does not have many friends at school. He does not understand why the other kids don't want to play with him.
