Gavin actually had a really good day. No tantrums or significant behavioral issues. In fact, he’s actually the only one of the three that listened today.
Lizze even wanted to reward his good behavior. 🙂
It’s not that the others boys were a problem, it’s just that they are going through a rough transitional period. They are adjusting to Gavin being home and now school being out for the summer.
Gavin’s never really seemed to struggle to much with change.
He kinda carries his world with him, wherever he goes. This really minimizes the impact of a change or disruption in routine.
It’s one of the little blessings that we’ve received, as it makes life easier for him and for us.
Great job today Gavin.
Also, I wanted to add something about this whole Lego thing. I know that pulling Legos from Gavin seems mean or unfair. However, I know Gavin and I assure you that this isn’t going to impact him, one way or the other.
This is anther example of why Gavin is so challenging to discipline. Nothing really phases him. He simply doesn’t care. Take away the Legos, he will just do something else.
Over the years, we go through these cycles were we rotate things away from him, in order to get him to explore new things..
In a way, this is actually a relief for him because now the boys aren’t hounding him to build them things.
From the outside, it’s not always easy to see that there is a method to the madness, but I promise you, at least 90% of the time there is…… 🙂
