Gavin was home for less than an hour before he already wasn’t listening. When he arrived home, he wanted to lay down. I thought that was a good idea because he didn’t look good.
He came down a few minutes later and fell down the last two steps.
I told him he need to lay down and he went back upstairs.
I had to step out for a few minutes and the moment I left, he started letting himself out of his room. Lizze sent him back at least twice.
Shortly after I got back home, he let himself out again. This time, when I sent him back, he just stood at the top of the steps and ignored me. Once I got him back in his room, I called him down a little while later.
When I asked him why he had been letting himself out of his room, especially while I was gone. He basically denied coming back down after Lizze had sent him back upstairs to rest.
I took this opportunity to explain my War on Stress.
I told him how we are going to be running a tighter ship, in order to eliminate stress from everyone’s lives.
While he didn’t listen tonight, he also didn’t have a tantrum when I questioned him. That’s a positive thing…right?
