This morning as I was getting Perkie ready for school, he was ok just his normal self. Then, all of a sudden he just flipped, I don’t know what caused it or triggered it. He suddenly went from a quiet laid back boy to a monster. He started shouting, refusing to anything, lashing out. I got caught in the crossfire and was hit in the face. He wouldn’t put his shoes on and was sat on the floor kicking out at us.
So I wrote in his homelink book what had happened , so they knew what to expect during the day. I knew if anywhere it would be at school he would calm down.
He came home and to be truthful I wasn’t quite sure what to expect as I have never really seen him have a meltdown as bad as this morning for a long time. The last bad one was when he decided he would sit in the middle of a busy main road, in the pouring rain. No-one helping me as I struggled with a pram and trying to pick him up. Anyway he came home and he was adamant that I have a look in his book bag.
The teachers had read the book and had sat and talked to him about his behaviour and that it was unacceptable and it had made mummy sad. That bit seemed to sink in, as after that he asked his teacher if he could write a letter. He actually wrote this himself
Here is what it said
Dear Mummy and Daddy
I am sorry that I was naughty, I give you a kiss and a hug
How lovely was that such a kind and thoughtful gesture and it was even more special that he wrote it
