Re: Behavior Charts
That's the big thing with him right now. He's usually a really good talker, and can figure out how to say what he means pretty well. But when he gets angry about something (usually when I won't let him have/do something he wants), it's like he switches from my sweet little boy into a demon from hell. There's screaming and kicking and thrashing. Full blown meltdown. I try to just let him scream it out someplace safe, but he's gotten worse. So now, I'm trying the "bear hug" and speaking calmly to him for a few minutes. I want to reward him when he handles his anger well, because I think that might be the key.
