Walter went down tonight without issue. We had therapy and he gladly went. He was light and breezy for most of the evening. Dudette and I have noticed a major up tick in apologies. I asked him tonight if he thought we were always mad at him and he tersely said, “YES.” I don’t know why, we’ve been pouring on the positive reinforcement and there are moments were we get tense because listening is not a priority but it hardly seems to me like we do nothing but yell. I think we need to have the “Last Stop” chat again. The one where we tell him he isn’t going anywhere. I don’t know how else to help with his self esteem. I feel like we’ve been pretty tolerant and lenient for the last few weeks so this “sorry” streak has really got me spinning.
He also told me tonight his teacher told him today he has to do last weeks homework again. She told my wife we need to correct it and work on his handwriting. I’m going to speak with the principal again tomorrow. This conversation is going to be a bit less cordial than the last one. This teacher has got to cut the mother fucking shit. I’ve had rage issues. I handle myself more maturely by choice now. She’s making me want to make some different choices.
