Eeyore has been having a rough month. Yesterday he escalated to the point that I seriously considered having him admitted to the psychiatric hospital. husband was able to get him to calm down enough to go to his room. He wrote in his journal that he thinks I'm a mean horrible mom and that he is 89%-93% sure he is never speaking with me again I took his journal and wrote back to him and we passed the journal back and forth for about 20 minutes. He actually "listened" and we made some progress We're calling this a "paper talk" and making it his #1 new coping skill.
