This young 7 yr old had anger issues directed at young children, especially 2 to 4 yr old. We have a 3 yr old son, who is very passive and sweet and this issue was not shared with us. We wanted to try despite this issue and it didn’t work out very well at all. While my husband was away on a work trip it all come to surface on evening.
This cute precious boy got angry and went after our home furniture and walls. The scariest part for me was he lashed out at me, since I had sent my young son and older son to the room away from the episode of rage. I assume since I was the only one available it was turned at me. I asked for him to be removed from our home that very night and he was placed in a temp home till Sunday night. This episode happened on a Thursday night, he was away for 3 nights and returned for one night to our home before being permanently place in another home.
I later learned that this boy raged for 9 days straight at that home as well. My heart ached for him, but my first instinct is my family and I pray for him still almost daily. I still have pictures of him and some of his school project too save away, not sure why but I do. There are many details that I want to add such as the fishing trip we went on with the kids and the few dinners we had as a family while he was here. Also the anxiety I felt as 3:30 pm drew near everyday and I knew the school bus was about to leave him at our home every weekday. What a mix of emotions we all had for those few weeks we had him here. His last day with our family was August 30, 2010 That same day he left our 11 yr old girl returned, actually just as I was walking in to the office, I got the call that she was to return to our home. I was sad and happy at the same time for the first time in time, as I was pretty emotionally attached to this girl.
