This little one does not deal well with change.
We went through this last year when she started Kindergarten, but this year with her starting grade one, it seems to be taking so much longer for her to adjust.
She comes in the door every. single. day. kicking and screaming and crying.
She begs every day to stay home with me. She says she is stupid and no one likes her.
Her impulsivity is through the roof. She hits. She screams. She steals. She can't obey. Ever. Luckily, this seems to only be happening at home. She is scheduled to meet with a Psychiatrist at the Glenrose Hospital in November for an extensive assessment.
I take her in my arms and cuddle her. I tell her she is pretty. She is smart. We try to work on her spelling words and she is so not there yet... it is almost impossible for her to do this right now. I did go in and meet with her teacher and her teacher loves her... she isn't concerned with any behaviour issues at school and hasn't seemed to notice any learning issues.
This photo was taken one day when I wouldn't let her have the iPad. She decided that she was going to run away, so she packed her very favourite things. She is a little drama queen! Through it all, she keeps us laughing and entertained.
