Got a call from Jackson's school today. He had an incident in which he went into the advisors office today to talk about getting back computer time at school. She and his teacher told him they hadn't had a chance to meet and talk about it yet and he got upset. The conversation went up and down a few more times, and then when they were getting ready to go back to class, jackson sat his chair in front of the closed door and refused to move until they agreed to let him have computer time.
Rose, the security guard, had to push the door open to get in, in the process hurt jacksons hand.. which then set him off again. He lashed otu at rose, and scratched her arm. Then the remorse hit him. and he was so sad and sorry. They calmed down together.
Then Jackson was able to SELF REGULATE himself and CONTINUE on to class. THis is a huge step people. HUGEEEE! This just means that if we keep up with this, that he will eventually be able to self regulate himself before that point of no return (earlier).
When he got home today, I sat him down and asked how his school was. He first tried to brush it off as it was a great day, nothing has happened, etc. But he knew I knew something was up. we talked about it and I told him how I was happy that he was able to self regulate, but that there still had to be some sort of small consequence. I told him he could have his hour of computer time, but that was it, and if he fought me at all, he would lose his hour the next day.
HE seemed satisfied with that, but we will see when it really comes to that time. RIght now I am just kinda on cloud nine about the self regulation.
I almost want to burst out into this song:
