Gavin has a very specific bedtime routine and it requires working wifi.
Shortly after 8pm, the internet we out and that meant Gavin couldn’t do what he wanted to do. He became so frustrated that his tablet was offline, he started flinging things around his room. He took a sweatshirt and began hitting everything he could with it.
I should make it clear that he had confined himself to his room and while we could all hear/feel his massive meltdown from everywhere in the house, he didn’t put anyone in danger. Good for him.. ☺
He could have been running through the house, freaking out and terrifying everyone. Instead, he removed himself and went to his room.
I did talk to him and explain that he cannot react this way because he’s an adult. Adults have different rules and we have to really try our best to follow them. We are going to have to help him find better ways of coping with his frustration.
At the end of the day, he didn’t break anything, and no one was hurt, including himself. I keep telling you it’s the little things.
