What am going to do with him

D! I don't know. I think I am going to have Children's Friend take over his meds and maybe something can be done about the horror that is the morning time. I had told the school at his IEP meting not even four weeks ago that they might see some more aggression and I wanted him away from the older kids. But, like everyone else, they were like D, he is so sweet. Well, maybe he is sick of hiding the aggression at school. I got a call this Am form the principal who told me D was hitting on the playground and that the a group of fourth graders told him D had said he was going to kill them. D denied it, but sounds like something he would say out of frustration. I doubt he means it, but he always goes for the shock value. Especially if the kids he wanted attention from were ignoring him. I have a call in to Nicole, his therapist, who was already bringing his case to consult. I buckled down last night and made him stay home from C's baseball game for his moth to me. He is going to be in for a surprise. He really needs a social skills group, and I think an anti anxiety med. Along with getting him to realize the consequences of his actions. He should thank his lucky stars I am so devoted to helping him and finding the proper treatment course. I am tired...but not giving up. I have wrote of how tired I am of the mouth and the behavior and I just keep plugging along. Nicol wants T go to the next appointment, this Thursday,but as always he says there is no way he can get out of work. I doubt that. I am going to ask him again in light of these new developments. He already told me I worry too much. I have to, that is my job!

Dear God,
Please give me the strength to face my days and find the right words to help D in his times of frustration. Be with me as I parent and guide me in my path. I ask for your help with peace and calmness in my heart and greater understanding. I bring this to you with all my heart...Amen

  1. It is amazing how we parent with so much guilt associated with it. We all do it, even if we are doing a great job, which you are! It is okay to be tired and okay to worry too much - I believe that is all in the handbook ... which none of us ever get. :P) Keep plugging away, keep doing the best.
