His sister's crying has been a major trigger for him in the past. The other day she kept crying repeatedly (maybe 5 separate occasions one night) and he yelled on the last two times. He wanted to run off to his room but we really needed to finish his homework so he could have his reward (screen time) before bed. So I encouraged him to get through the work and had her leave the area. He did so well remaining calm and getting his work done despite his frustration!
Yesterday he went to the orthodontist. He was very nervous about whether he would need x-rays and kept verbalizing that he was nervous. During the visit he let the orthodontist touch his mouth even though it made him uncomfortable. He did a great job through the exam. So proud of how far he has come!
