I took Colin to Karate tonight and, his master came out of  the dojo and told me that Colin kicked a kid and the mother complained so, I had to take him home.  Colin knows he needs to keep his hands to himself but, he really has a problem with this in Karate.  When I went into the dojo to get him, I asked him to put his shoes on and he looked at me with these big, blue, innocent eyes and said "Why do I have to leave Mom?"  I asked him why he kicked that boy and he just said that he felt like it.  I feel so sad......

He needs a monkey harness.  Then all will be right with the world!  I kid.

I think it's really hard to not give into impulses like that. Hopefully having to leave and not do somehting he wanted to do will set up in his mind cause & effect, and next time he can keep his feet happy instead of hurty so he can stay for the whole class.
