Yesterday I babysat 4 little boys. They were all pretty cool, manageable, and kept me occupied. I started with only 3 of them, then the only one who goes to school arrived.
This little boy, apparently, is just more active than the rest. By active I mean... maybe tightly strung, aggressive (but not in an angry way), and attention demanding. Traditional school works for him.
There was a point in the afternoon that he did something that made me super jealous. He seemed calm, but obviously something was internally bothering him. So he secluded himself, screamed for about thirty seconds to get his anger out, then returned to playing.
I want to be able to do that.
