Aaron Doing Better
If you have read some previous posts about Aaron as a cry for help, or at least for prayer, then you have read right. So I am happy to report he is making progress. He still has his tantrums, but good behavior is much more common than before. Not responding, or at least doing so with a very flat tone of voice, to requests that are made with whining and anger seems to have gotten him to realize that he will get what he wants faster and easier if he just uses words. Similarly, direct but not aggressive scolding when he is in the wrong seems a more effective way to get him to change his behavior. So, for those who have been praying, thank you and keep doing so: sweet Aaron is far better to have around than stormy Aaron.
