Things with Aiden are not going well.
He has been bullying other kids at school. I spent an hour on the phone with the vice-principal tonight. He is on the road to expulsion.
She was very nice about it and said they would take into account his Autism/ADHD but even if you have special needs it doesn't mean you can hit other kids. Which we obviously agree with. I told her that things are a lot better now than they were a year ago- but they are still not good. She was asking me for suggestions as to how to help him.
I don't know what to tell her.
I am so so so sad.
This is not a surprise. We knew there were problems- there have always been problems with Aiden's anger.
Aiden is meeting with his mental health worker again soon and she has some ideas to help him with impulse control.
I've always thought it is a bit ironic that everytime we go to the special needs centre I see all sorts of pamphlets and posters saying things like "What to do if your child is being bullied" but none that say "what to do if your 7 year old child IS the bully".
And yes, he always has consequences for his actions and yes, he knows it is wrong. But in that moment when someone ticks him off he just loses it.
I don't want any advice right now ok? I just would like prayers.
