First let me start by saying I'm so glad difficult child's violence is at an all time low! That being said though, I'm so tired of his CONSTANT arguing and disrespect. Everything anyone says he takes as a chance to argue. He is so disrespectful, especially to me but really to all of us. We give him consequences but it is so chronic it is hard to consequence each time (though we are trying). He is back to being a pain about taking his medications (for a long time he was very compliant). Often it ends up on the floor or somewhere else before he finally takes it (the other day I ran back into the house because I realized he hadn't taken his dose and back to the van-he threw it out in the snow-I was so mad). He thinks he is being funny-don't know where he got that idea. Today I told him that any time he doesn't take his medications immediately and appropriately when asked he will lose whatever he is involved in for at least 30 minutes. We'll see how that goes! As soon as he hears something from husband or me that he doesn't like he replies that he wishes he were an orphan and that he wishes he wasn't part of this family. We've taken to ignoring him on this. He gets his feelings hurt at the drop of a hat but seems not to care about his effects on others! Don't know where I'm going with this-guess it's mostly a vent. I'm just tired of it right now. Thanks for listening!
