As Shannie approached the office, she heard a boy yelling. And she knew right away that it was Jacob. He was extremely upset about something, yet he refused to explain what. He was just yelling as loud as he could. There were a few teachers and students present to witness the whole ordeal. Then he refused to leave the school. My poor wife had to pick Jacob up and literally carry him outside. Jacob was so mad that he didn't even put on his coat. Once they got home, his mood didn't improve much. He spent most of his lunch break upstairs in his room. We managed to get him to eat after we both talked to him about his poor behaviour. Then I walked him back to school and he seemed pretty happy, which was nice considering how mad he was.
So I went back to work hoping for the best. When I got home at a little after five, Shannie told me that the school called and she was asked to come pick Jacob up early. Again he was screaming in the foyer of the school. He didn't want to do anything in class and he was mad at everyone. But once Shannie got Jacob away from school his mood changed. It took a while, but he did complete all his home work and he became rather happy. We talked to Jacob about his poor behaviour and he eventually promised to have a better day tomorrow. But who knows. All we can do is hope for the best. It's very weird because the school would like Jacob to get some behaviour therapy at home, but it's only at school that his behaviour is this bad. He just doesn't act this way at home. And when he does get upset, he usually regulates his emotions and calms down very quickly. So we're not sure what good home therapy will do? He really needs some therapy in school, but we don't know whats available.
