The boys had an emotional therapy session last night. Gavin didn’t participate outside of briefing us on his rather bizarre missions he’s been going on lately. Frankly, it was weird and kind of uncomfortable to listen to.
Elliott and Emmett had some things that were upsetting them. These were things that I couldn’t help with because I don’t have any control over other people’s actions. They didn’t want to talk about it but they eventually did and I’m very proud of them for doing so.
Mr. Emmett went and found a blue bucket, cut out facial expressions, and taped them to the outside of the bucket before putting it over his head in an attempt to avoid talking about these things. He evertually opened up but it took some time.
I have to give him props for his level of creativity. I’m not sure anything was actually addressed or resolved but both boys aired their grievences and that took courage on their part. I’m really proud of them.
