We got everything and more done in my planning book today.
The problem is that my dear almost 8 year old has behaviors that are difficult to describe: kind of annoying behaviors, like when I'm talking to him about something I expect him to do or I'm explaining something to him, he'll make weird faces or laugh...rather than sitting on the sofa, he climbs over the back of it and jumps down onto the cushion. Things like this. I honestly don't know what to do about it. It makes me really mad, but my anger doesn't help the situation.
To me, it communicates disrespect. He would never treat his swim coach like this.
My life WOULD be easier on some levels if I sent him to school, but I know in the long run, it wouldn't be good for any of us.
