My kids have been "normal" all day, no problems at all. Then the behaviorist called, said she was in town, and wanted to see if she could come over and observe and talk with me. Sure, why not? So we were sitting at the table talking and the kids were playing and doing pretty good. Maggie wanted the moon dough so I let her get it out. A little bit later I told her it was time to put it up and she needed to pick up what she had dropped on the floor. She told me no. I told her she could either pick it up or go to time out. She refused either so I put her in timeout. She sat there and screamed and stomped her feet and basically went insane. Now, this happens once in a blue moon so I picked her up and hugged her, only thing that calms her. In a minute or two she was ok, i told her she had disobeyed and needed a timeout. She said yes ma'am. I sat her down and she started screaming again. I told her to stop or go to her room. She ignored me so I picked her up and took her to her room. As soon as I shut the door she was at it hitting and kicking it and screaming some more.
I have never seen her this way before. she's pretty mellow. She gets overstimulated and a little wired sometimes, but she has never been combative or violent. I just wanted to cry :( At least I can say the kid has great timing and somebody else was there to see it. i worry sometimes that people think I'm crazy because their problems aren't necessarily obvious all the time :(
