The boys had a great day at school today and that great day day quickly went downhill after arriving home.
Lately, Emmett has been struggling in the coping with frustration area of his life. He goes from zero to full-on rage in nothing flat. While he has legitimate reasons to be frustrated, the issue at heart is his inability to cope with said frustration.
I think part of the problem is that while he loves school and does remarkably well, it’s also very taxing on him. When he gets home from school, he sorta crumbles.
What we have to do is find a way for him to more constructively manage these emotions. We have some tools at our disposal and we need to get him back into using them on a regular basis, because they do help.
For the moment, we will talk about how to best go about helping him tonight at therapy.
