A year later and we're still having some behavioural struggles with Malcolm. Perhaps it's the excitement of the holidays that triggers things for him, but lately Tracey and Roger look beaten some days. They try their hardest to convey the right message, but often times it's still not enough. This despite bringing home the most excellent report card to date. It's flabbergasting to both Roger and Tracey what the teacher writes about him, cause it's a stark comparison how he can be at home. We're still dealing with outrageous tantrums, we're still dealing with less than kind behaviour toward his sister. Most days when they are getting along, it's just a matter of time how long it will last. These days especially there are outbursts, screaming, hitting and even growling. We'll all be glad once they finally outgrow it. At least that's the hope we all have going forward. Again, to quote his report card:
"Malcolm is a calm, patient, conscientious, friendly boy. He has settled into the class and he has made friends. Malcolm is well liked by his classmates, and he is also a good role model for them."
Can this really be the same kid who fusses about the smallest thing? We're perplexed to say the least.
Here are some random shots from the past few weeks.
