So I had a not very nice meeting with Zayden's daycare teacher yesterday when I picked him up. She came to tell me that she felt Zayden was fully adjusted (after three weeks at this new place) and they were starting to work on some of his behavior problems. Sigh
Apparently yesterday was not a great day, he was hitting other kids A LOT and taking toys, etc. One time he bonked another kid three times with a toy on his/her head hard. This daycare works a lot on "positive discipline" so time out is not their first option, they work on redirection and positive reinforcement but they had to take him out of the situation at least twice to have him sit and "think about his behavior". She said they also had issues on the playground where another child had a bike he wanted and so he just went and sat on top of them till they moved and is aggressive to the bigger kids on the play ground. She was concerned those kids would hit him back (well maybe he would learn then?)
AND the worst part is whenever he doesn't get what he wants he throws himself on the floor and screams bloody murder.
Told her we would work on it at home (again) and scolded him once we got in the car, he was upset so when we picked up daddy he hid behind his blanky. Yesterday we read hands are not for hitting and I asked him on the way to school, do we hit our friends? He gets this evil grin and says yes. NO ZAYDEN we do not hit our friends.
This is just an ongoing issue. I keep hoping he out grows it. I wish this daycare was a little more firm with him so we stop these issues before preschool starts again but it sounds like its ongoing. I cannot wait till he is old enough we can reason with him or do something to get him to stop!
