Gavin is slipping back into bad habits

Gavin has been slowly and steadily making a backwards slide back into old habits.  Several times now,  we have caught him lying to us.  He’s also trying to put Lizze and I against each other at times as well.

Have you ever seen the movie called The Good Son. If you have,  that’s what it feels like with Gavin.

For those that haven’t seen the movie,  basically their is a boy that presents himself one way but is someone else all entirely when no one is looking. You really should watch the movie.

I’m not saying Gavin is kind of psycho killer, like the boys in the movie,  but there are still similarities in behavior.

I don’t know what to think of his actions.  They could be explained away by any number of ways.  However,  they could just as easily be darker in both nature and intent.. It’s really hard for me to admit this is a very real possibility. However,  he seems to be focusing on pushing Lizze’s buttons. He obviously has something going on there.

While he’s been controlling his physical outbursts,  there is still something of a psychological war he waging.

We see Dr.  Patti again tonight.  We plan to calmly and constructively confront him tonight and do address these concerns.

Also, maybe flat out explain to him, and make a visual sheet showing what the rules are, that easy if he says he didn't know, you can reference back to the sheet. Maybe also positive token reward system? Not sure, just trying to think. Thinking of you all!


 @Chloe123 Good idea, as usual 🙂


One tip/thought I have, be sure to praise him and tell him that you have noticed how hard is working on not having meltdowns and how you appreciate it. Sometimes it just helps to know someone is noticing efforts, I don't know if that is the case here, not sure. 


 @Chloe123 We do that all the time but the lying is a big problem.


 @lostandtired Yes lying is NOT okay and he needs to realize this.
