    Levi's behavior (update)

    Iocasta posted:
    I was picking him up at school yesterday and his teacher was walking out with him. We greet and she puts her hand on his head and says I have to tell you something. I immediately braced myself to hear we had a bad day but no. She goes on to say, "Levi was so helpful today and a good role model." On hearing this, I was doing a dance internally. Also, his handwriting and art work has improved dramatically. I see how silly it was for us to take him to the neuro-psyche. At least, we didn't do any of the behavior therapy or the fine motor skill stuff. He is just a little boy that needed a little extra time to mature. He is still little ball of kinetic energy as posted earlier but that's at a normal and acceptable level. Best of all Levi is really loving school this year. He has always liked it but he is really into it this year. Talking in detail about his day and the books that they have read. Hopefully, we have cleared one hurdle, now it is on to the next.

    That's great news!

    We had back to school night last night and got to talk with George's teacher & student teacher. George had some issues settling into the more structured/confined routine and behaviors of Kindergarten (over preschool) but has really been working hard and it's been clicking for him this week. Hopefully we are turning a corner with the behavior.

    That's great!

    And, instead of thinking that it was silly, think of it as the responsible thing to do. You made sure to explore all of Levi's options. It just turned out that he didn't need it.

    That is great ! Sometimes I think some are so quick to what to place a "label" on something. I feel a lot of times maturity just happens.
    So happy to hear how great he is doing! Yea!
