trying hard to get that temper under control

John is, as always, either great or awful.  He worked really hard on the STAAR (new TAKS test) for writing the first couple of days this last week.  I am really proud of him and glad that he worked hard.  He did really well until Friday and then he totally lost it.  He hit his teacher many times and they had to work with him really hard to help him calm down.  He snuck some time on the computer while I was asleep on Saturday but he agreed that he shouldn’t get the computer again that day until about 4:30.  He actually didn’t get on until 5:30 so it all worked out.  He kept asking me if he could get on the computer and I would give him a look and shake my head or ask him to remember when he could use the computer again.  At first he would start getting mad and then he would catch himself and smile impishly and run off.  He did really well up until the last hour and even then it was only a good shout and not a tantrum.  He is trying hard to get that temper under control.
