Another bad day...

Lawson had another rough day today at daycare - the second on this week. Earlier in the week he was sent home for slapping a child and leaving marks on his back; today was for biting. He gets so frustrated and he doesn't know what to do with the frustration so, he takes it out on whoever is around him. Sometimes it is because they are touching his stuff, sometimes it is just because they are near.

I feel like it is out of control and I don't know what to do to stop it. We have an appointment with a therapist Tuesday but until then...what? I guess we just take it day by day. I will continue to take him to school and if I have to go get him then I will. It is just frustrating to have to close my shop, drive to Dandridge, and then figure out what I am going to do with him for the remainder of the day...today, he had to come back to the shop with me.

I know there is an answer to what is going on with him, I am just having a hard time waiting to find out that answer. I want to help him so he doesn't lose all his friends. He is four, I know, and they will forget, but I just feel like at this age, maybe they won't forget and he won't have any friends because he hits them all. I am probably overreacting, I do that often, but I just want him to be able to function with his peers without so much anger and frustration.

Keep praying for us. For Lawson, that he will understand why hitting is not ok. For me, that I will have the knowledge to help him understand. For Charlie, that he will keep the sanity to endure both me and Lawson...lol!
