Yesterday Lil' Man had the melt down of all melt down's. Hubby went to the school to try and get him under control. He was threatening to throw a chair at his pregnant teacher when the hubby walked into the room. All because he wanted to be the door holder, and today was not his day.
It kind of makes me laugh, because he's four, and is on the short side for his age. So I don't understand why they cant control him. I mean don't stand there and watch him attempt to throw a chair. Do something about it.
I have requested an IEP meeting, just waiting for a date and time. For their sake I hope its sooner rather than later.
Every morning we go over the rules of the classroom. Lil' Man recites them like a pro. I tell him how much of a good boy he is. I remind him how happy it makes me when he listens nicely with his ears. Maybe I am hyping it up too much? Setting him up for failure?
We've tired sticker charts, we've tried times outs, we've tired taking away toys, and privilege's, but those things don't work for an FAS kid. When he's in a rage, he doesn't care. You have to deescalate it before it gets to the point of a rage.
He's doing fine at home, and also at daycare (where he previously was off the hook). We've got to figure something out soon.
