Gavin has his 2nd day of home instruction at the library today. He’s actually there right now and Lizze is reporting that he’s already having problems.
He’s frustrated because he doesn’t understand the clichés in the book he just read this week. I wouldn’t expect him to understand clichés much like I wouldn’t expect him to understand sarcasm.
The problem is the way he reacts. He has a physical reaction. His body gets really tense and like Bruce Banner turns into the Incredible Hulk, Gavin gets violent and aggressive. We’ve been working with him on better coping skills for many years but he retains very little.
It’s frustrating all around. Hopefully, he’ll pull it together and finish.
