Joy has decided that Blue’s Clues is amazing! She loves Steve! And she has made up a sign for “Blue’s Clues” – two fists out in front, open and close in rapid succession.
We are having a little struggle with Joy. When she gets overly tired or over-stimulated, she scratches and it really hurts! She usually draws blood. Usually it only happens at home, but she got a little boy at school today. Nothing that I’ve tried so far has helped her understand that she is hurting people. We’ve tried talking, explaining, using a mean voice to say NO!, time out – but when she’s tired or over stimmed, she’s not thinking - just reacting to these crazy feelings in her body. Have to figure this out – and hopefully quick!
