Having trouble controlling his emotions and frustrations especially at the end of each school day
Hello Master David,
I am writing to you about my son Harry. Harry, my 7yo son has done quite a few after school sports and has participated because his friends were there or has gone along with what I had suggested he do for something fun. He was the same when I mentioned Taekwondo, so off we went to see what it was like after Harry received a free class voucher from a birthday party he attended.
Harry was welcomed with open arms and after the first lesson we purchased his suit and he was all smiles, we took lots of photos and sent them to all the family. Everyone was very impressed with the little man in uniform, I had never seen Harry so enthused about a sport before.
During the following weeks he mentioned how much he loved Taekwondo and asked ‘when am I going back mummy’, he now knows every Thursday is the day and is very excited each time we go.
This is the boy I used to know, I have my Harry back …
Whilst continuing Taekwondo Harry was having trouble controlling his emotions and frustrations especially at the end of each school day as he was obviously very tired and grumpy. He would take this out on his family, especially his mother, this was extremely hard to deal with and caused great upset in the household. I was dealing with it the best I could and one Thursday afternoon In early broke down in front of David but held my tears back and explained the situation we were all dealing with. David was more than happy to help and took Harry aside for a chat.
To this day I do not know what David said to Harry, I didn’t ask, but what ever was said it worked. Harry is dealing much better with his feelings and emotions and is treating his family, especially mum, with respect and has become a very loving boy. This is the boy I used to know, I have my Harry back.
Thank you David for your help and support and we are looking forward to many happy times at Taekwondo.
