Gavin had a pretty massive meltdown/tantrum after school today. It was over his goddamn homework again. There were times this felt like a tantrum and other times he just seemed really frustrated and it could have been a meltdown.
I suppose it doesn’t really matter.
I asked Gavin how he expected to answer the questions, having not read the attached material? He just said that he didn’t want to read it.
He lost it and during what I’ll just call his rage, he kept hitting himself, screaming and even punching himself in the face.
Thankfully this didn’t last for too long. Even still, he frightened his little brothers and it was all so unnecessary. The problem was that he was rushing through his homework because he wanted to play his tablet.
We of course took the tablet out of play and he eventually agreed to to read the one page of material necessary to make a legitimate attempt at doing his homework.
To his credit, after he took the time to read the material, all of his answers were correct. It’s amazing how that works, isn’t it. (^_-)
