Sometimes I feel like I live in a perpetual meltdown. By the time I recover from one, I’m knee deep in another one. It’s exhausting to say the very least.
Gavin had a very violent meltdown this morning. He was trying to play Lizze and I off each other and I caught him.
The very simple act of accountability is what sets him off. It doesn’t matter what the consequences are, he was caught and doesn’t like it. The meltdown is his way of expressing that dislike. It’s not sensory related at all. He’s fine until he learns there is a consequence for his actions.
Personally, I’m growing tired of living in Meltdown Central, it’s the smallest/loudest city in the world.
Thank God we see Dr. Pattie in about 8 hours. I’m literally counting down the minutes. My hope is that we can at least get some direction to go in with Gavin’s behaviors.
