Hi you don't know me but I just wanted to say Thank you. I was actually reading a forum you commented on about a dog and it led me or I should say God led me to read your journal entry...I have been having some problems with my 14 year old son and some things that you said really put things in perspective for me..so God bless you and thank you again...Kristi Hanks

The tattoo pics are up finally! I've been kind of holding off because my arm is bruised and the background looks reddish/brown right now, when it's going to end up being gray shading. About halfway through, I asked myself, "What in the world did I get myself into?" LOL!!

Turns out when the girl fell (she was walking backwards) he felt bad for her (she's in his class) and wanted to give her a hug.  I asked him to show me how he was laying on her.  Turns out only his arms were across her shoulders and the rest of his body was on the ground.    I explained to him that even though it was nice that he wanted to give her a hug, that it's best to keep his hands and rest of his body to himself.

Ha ha! I thought that was a bit strange! Never mind.

Yeh my boy is pretty much the same, in fact he went backwards over Christmas and hasn't progressed forward since.
Still waiting for some help from the hospital with a "play therapist". Will let you know when the appointment comes through.
Thanks for asking.
Hope you are well. xxxxxxxx

It makes my day brighter to know that you're doing so good! It's always great to hear that! Everything is going really good over here too. The kids are getting on track and my stepson is FINALLY getting his act together in school. HIs ADD meds have really helped with his grades and behavior (for the most part anyway). I'm really looking forward to the holiday so I can spend a little extra time with my husband and babies. Life goes by WAY too fast! Have a wonderful day!

Re:Just a quick note to say hi!

Thanks for that - If you could let me jhave the title of the book that would be great. The solution seems a bit drastic but I am sure my daughter would like to try anything to solve this.

Cheers - yvonne

Thank you for everything!  Your words of support meant a lot.  We will definitely never bring this up with our son again!  Now hubby and I just need to find a way to let this go within ourselves.  Thanks again though, this forum and your words on it really did give us support through this.

Just a quick note to say hi! I agree and that makes a lot of sense. I get worried that the good part of him does not go away just because we failed to realize the core reason hence thoguht of asking you all out there.

Thanks -  Will try the method from now and will for sure let you know how it goes.

It was his first day at the new sitter and he loved it, he didn't cry but for just a minute when I dropped him off and he had a great day!! Thank you for your help and support. Hopefully today will go just as well. He didn't cry at all this morning when I dropped him off. This lady is wonderful and its just her and him and another 3 year old little boy all day.

Thank you for your input, He did have a hearing test in August 08, he is fine. He is very good most of the time. But my family thinks he is spolied being an only child and all. His father and I are divorced, and he has 4 step children at his dad's home ages 10 to 14 yrs. Any input you have I would be glad to hear it.

No, not rational at all sometimes! LOL! But I guess we all have our days. And thank you for saying you liked the post about the meds. You hit the nail on the head, I don't understand why medicating a child (only if they truly need it) has become such an issue lately. Probably the whole Tom Cruise/Brooke Shields feud or something! LOL!!!

Really? People think you're mean?? That is crazy! I can tell by your posts that you are straight up with people and it's their fault, not yours, if they can't handle a dose of the truth sometimes. They ask for help then reject it when they don't like what they read. I have always taken opinions, criticism, and praise to heart because I have learned SO MUCH from people on here, which is why I come here! Different people can open my eyes to different answers that I didn't think of and sometimes it's a blessing in disguise! And then of course, I love to share my opinions too in hopes of being able to give back to the people that listen and try to help me.

Thank you for everything!  I have tried ignoring it totally, but have not let him clean up himself much because he doesn't do it well.  I know, I know, he still needs to do it.  I just want everything to be clean!  I do think it is a control issue, which started this time last year when my husband and I divorced.  I think initially he started doing it because it was the only thing around him he could "control", but it's went past that.  He's adjusted very well to the new living situation, we have joint custody, but I think he's just got hung up in that pattern.  Maybe making him actually wash them will help.  I'll try anything at this point!  Many thanks!

Just a quick note to say hi! LoL I read your post about the net addiction post, funny you say that, my bf plays WoW. He has gotten much better since there is so much drama in his guild or w/e its called. I used to yell at him all the time b/c he was literally on it night and day 24/7. Then somehow he got me involved lol, I made a character and everything played for a couple weeks. I'll admit it is addicting...but I just got tired of it. Now that their updating it in Nov to level 80 he says he'll be playing again. Not looking forward to it !! But I realize its his way to get away and relax....and I guess it gives me time to myself as well.

Thank you for you sweet comment on my new sitter post. I am nervous but excited and have a wonderful feeling about this new sitter. Just wanted some outside point of view on ways to make it a little easier on my mommy's boy!!!

Yes we've implemented him cleaning himself  up afterwards. We make him clean himself up, sit on the toilet and attempt a movement, then take a bath and fully clean himself. It's just very repititious. The biggest problem is him lying about it or trying to hide it from us. Just the other night he apparantly had an "accident" and tried to hide his dirty underwear in the corner between the shower curtain and tub. We've explained to him that we understand that he has a medical condition that causes him to have the accidents, and we've even began putting plastic garbage bags in the cabinet for him to dispose of his dirty underwear. Instead he tries to hide them from us and lie to us about it. This is what's so frustrating about all of this.

Thank you for responding to me. The only problem that he has is the one I described. Other than that he's a completely normal boy. Hirshprung's Disease is simply this: the "ganglion cells" in his lower intestines aren't there; therefore the brain can't send the signal to have a bowel movement because there isn't anything there to recieve that signal. The funny thing is he can feel when he has to pass gas, and on occasion breaks into a full sprint to the restroom, but there are more times when he has his "accidents". Whether he's at school, asleep, or just outside playing he can't seem to make it to the restroom in time. Talking with his doctor wasn't any help either. He just prescribes "Enulose" to help soften the stool for an easier movement. Sounds gross huh? Welcome to my life.

Just a quick note to say hi! My story is a major scandal as well. We live very close to each other & our children are in some of the same classes. She will have to see her dad at some of these classes but he is refusing to have anything to do with her. Aside from taking everything away from her that she is used to, I don't know what to do.

Thank you, It helps just to talk to other adults, my husband thinks its just "normal kid stuff" and he will "grow out of it". I would rather we teach him to have self control now while he is small enough for us to have that battle, I feel like its now or never. Thankfully he had a good day today!

My son is in head start. He started last week and right after he started I have had bad behavor issues. He won't listen to me, he runs around like a chicken with his head cut off.

It drives me crazy since I have been working all day. What do I do?

I have not visited the forums.  His pediatrician tells me simple excuses for his behavior.  "He's awkward because he's taller than kids his age"  "He spasms for laughs" Tantrums are handled as rationally as possible. Time outs, privledges revoked, and talking.  No I do not let them go.  I have read up on autism and one of the signs were reactions to change in schedule.  So I watched him.  This is not my son.  He throws these fits because he is punished for doing something wrong.  He does not react well to punishment.  "These fits", I'm not too concerned about.  It's his interaction to every day things that worries me.
