    Hello and welcome to the site!

    There is a forum called FAQ. It will help with the abbreviations. Most are pretty straight forward. difficult children is what we call our challenging children. It lovingly stands for Gifts From God. Also while you are on the FAQ forum, there is a section that shows you how to make a signature. Please do that because it is so hard to keep everybody straight. We like to know who we are talking to.

    You found a safe place to land. Feel free to look around, and post anytime. Again, welcome!

    Welcome to the board!

    You have found a safe place to land for you and your family. If you look around on the Frequently Asked Questions Board (FAQ) you will find a list of the common abbreviations such as difficult child, easy child, etc.

    Those mean the gift from god or the kid who has the problems who brings you to the board...lol. easy child is your normal kid. husband or wife is your husband or wife.

    Check out that board to get more info.

    I hope you find this place a great asset. It was one of the first places I ever posted when I first got on the internet almost 10 years ago. I have been here ever since.
