The positive side of today’s behavioral issues

We had a problem with Gavin this morning, behaviorally.  It’s actually been quite sometime since we’ve had a problem like this. 

Essentially, out of nowhere, Gavin took Elliott’s zebra toy out if his hand, without asking and broke it.  I have no idea what he was thinking, if anything at all.  I’m learning towards this being a very, very impulsive move on his part.

Elliott was really upset this morning and Gavin really didn’t seem to care until I told him that he’d lost his tablet for the rest of the day because of his breaking Elliott’s favorite toy. 

When Gavin learned of his fate, he got really, really upset. 

He managed to keep himself under control for the most part and that’s a credit to him.  Elliott on the other hand is still pretty upset. 🙁

Does Gavin have pocket money/allowance? Maybe some of his pocket money could be put towards a new zebra for Elliott?
Although if Elliott’s anything like me it won’t matter because it won’t be the same one – toys to me always had personalities.
