..whilst I was at work
Aiseh.. *rub temples*
Of course he was unsure of himself. The new school. The new house. The new life.
I could understand all these. I empathised even. Hence I was dealing with him with utmost patience and larve....Larve Babeh...Larve......
Here is the thing.. He can be so angelic when he is with me. But behind me.. KNS! Talk about Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in da house.
Anyways, I told him , shouting at family is No No No (Sing:Don't phunk with my heart) and punishments are imminent:
a. I took away his favourite toy.
b. He has to be with me the whole time I am at work
c. We were to cancel the swimming session due the next day.
I took out a calendar and marked an X on the day he misbehaved. I told him I will warrant a star on the other days he shows no temper. And with three stars collected, I will return his toy. And with 5 stars, we will go on a special outing (
He readily accepted his punishments. I know he was really sorry for losing 'it'. He needed help in controlling his frustrations. And I gave him some tips. In fact he was crying so pitifully while holding our necklace, asking me not to be angry with him.
Actually I wasn't that angry. Disappointed, yes. And he knew it. It broke his heart more that I didn't yell at him, it seems.
Two days ago, he had already achieved his 3 star status, and happily received his toy by his side. I was happy with him too cos I had placed the toy in a drawer which is not too high for him to open. But he knew he wasn't supposed to reach for the forbidden toy. *proud*
With five stars today, he is officially off his probation period. He need not stay with me
*bite nails* I will tell u how he fares tomorrow.
