Quoting applelove:" I am not sure if you have read any of OP's other posts about her LO but she is an amazing Mom who deals ... [snip!] ... agreed that this would be a good way to get her LO to stop hurting himself in hopes of being sent home, then it is worth a try."
He wasn't afraid at all, he was just really mad. But in the long run, it wasn't a suspension it was willingly walking away so that looks good for him.
Thanks...I've already sent pictures and notified his real dad what happened, and we are just trying to get all the paperwork filled out so that we can have more plans in place.
Once we all think we have him figured out, he does something like this and we have to start over, AGAIN.
ETA: We also had to think of the other 2 who were napping. And when I have to bring him home when he's out of control and they're awake, well the baby thinks he's hilarious, I think he will until he gets hurt, but my daughter is terrified. They all have such compassion for him when he's having an outburst(my daughter says, "Oh Jacob it's ok") but she definitely doesn't want to be cracked in the head again and go to the hospital for stitches.
He was calm when he came home.
Here's to more plans tomorrow and hopefully a better day~
