Hi All, I have a child who is very impulsive, and is very high sensory. He has an oral fixation, and tries to eat the lead out of the pencils/colored pencils quite often. Yesterday he did it, and we had a talk about how it's unsafe to chew the lead, etc. He came in today with a miniature animal figurine that he said he could chew, and I told him it wasn't something appropriate to chew either and let him know why. After that, I told him to begin his rainbow writing and his sentences. He told me to come over 5 minutes later and showed me his sentence: "I hate (my name)." I told him I'm sorry that he felt that way, and that I will always care about him, and then he erased it. I found out shortly after that right before he came back to class, he ended up physically hurting one of the other students while they were in gym, and the other student was at the nurse. I know he was having a hard day, but I've never had a student write down or say that they hated me. Anyone want to share similar stories so I don't feel so alone? Thanks!
