X’s tempers

If X used to throw 6 full blown tantrums a day, it had reduced to 4. It was an improvement but it really could be better. He was quick to get mad, slow to cool down. 

Maybe we should let him work off his anger. Maybe we should wait.

But he also got so carried away that his anger lasted very long.

I had been trying to talk to him about choosing the happier path, choosing the easy way out and not minding the small flaws in the plan. These pep talk did not work. 

So now I worked on the disincentive method – choose the olive branch or the cane. 

An olive branch represented a new chance, a new possibility and a new hope. Thankfully, this boy had learned to choose the olive branch. Hope this would last!
