Today has been a good day. Nokomis has behaved as well as we can expect. She began to create havoc with the other children but that was short circuited when I asked the children to go outside. Later, I brought Nokomis' brothers and sister together to process the event. We decided that I should use a code word to let them know they are not in trouble when I ask them to leave. The idea is that on occasions where the situation is becoming violent, I will ask the children to leave the room. In so doing I will say a key word that will let them know what is going on. We incorporated the use of walkie talkies so I can communicate that the coast is clear. This makes the process seem more like a spy game which my children are into lately!
