One on One Time
But, the most important thing that we did was to spend some time together. He stayed on track with his homework so we had some extra time to work on a 3-D puzzle. We laughed and talked. I didn’t show him how to do anything better or criticize, we just hung out together.
The next morning he woke up saying he felt so happy, but he didn’t know why. All day he acted like an angel. In the afternoon, after he had completed his homework in a timely manner, I took him and his sister on a fall scavenger hunt. After his little sister went to bed, we talked for a little bit. Just chatting.
He woke up with eyes shining this morning, of course that could just be because it is Halloween :), but I can see a change in him already.
