One of the issues we had yesterday was that Gavin taking things out of his brothers hands. It wasn’t that his brothers were handing him something, they just had something he wanted.
I spoke with him about this but basically choose to let it slide.
This morning he did it again. He says that he doesn‘t know why he’s doing that. Could it be simply impulse control issues or something more? Do I believe that he doesn‘t know why? Yes and no.
He’s my son, I want to believe everything that comes out of his mouth. However, I’m just smart enough to know that I can’t. I truly hate the fact that I can’t trust him but that’s the reality I live in.
He always claims that he either forgot, didn’t know, doesn’t know why or flat out denies that it happened. The truth is, we can have a difficult time knowing one from the other because he’s very convincing. The only reason we ever catch him him is that he has a tell. Basically, when we question him about something, he reacts in one of two ways.
If he’s done nothing wrong and is telling the truth, he tends to remain calm and under control.
On the flip side of the same coin, if he’s guilty and being untruthful, he will almost immediately meltdown because he’s angry that he got caught.
I’ve just totally lost my train of thought and have no idea where I was going with this, so I’m gonna cut this short. My brain is on overload and stringing thoughts together is not the easiest thing at the moment. If you would like, you can just assume that where I was going was profound and awe inspiring 😛
