He sometimes uses his hands or has tantrums when he is frustrated. He is fearless and exuberant. He also needs lots of physical activity and help winding down. He is in love and obsessed with his siblings and the family as a whole. He loves one on one time and has a hard time in larger groups and with transitions in general. He takes A LOT of patience and sometimes physical strength. But he truly is a love and just needs help making good and kind decisions. He loves fairies, being read to, puzzles, building blocks and one on one time. You must love telling and reading stories and be super creative to hang and bond with this kid. He both needs clear boundaries and a very loving person.
