difficult child came home again today with some homework. Not much but he needed my help. I sat down to help with a worksheet from the class he is having so many behaviors in. Guess he's been a little better during class because they are finally following ALL of his IEP and BIP. However, he still struggles with the work in this class. I tried to show him HOW to do the work. He thought he knew how so did many of them totally wrong. I politely asked him if he wanted me to show him how or if he wanted to turn it in with so many wrong. That started it. He hates being wrong but I gave him the choice since it is HIS homework and HIS grade. He started with yelling, arguing that he was right, telling me he hated me and that I am the worst mom in the world. I walked away to help easy child with his homework. This time, difficult child followed me and continued to the point that easy child wanted to leave the house. I got upset with difficult child because of what he was doing to easy child. After a little bit, easy child left the room and I went with him. difficult child stopped immediately. He sat down and let me show him HOW to do the rest of the worksheet. He actually went back and corrected the ones he'd done incorrectly. This "battle" lasted about 30 min and caused easy child some stress but I am very proud of easy child for not getting into it with difficult child and also with difficult child for the shorter battle and for "turning it around" again. Upset with myself for even the short battle but happy it was short-lived. Affecting easy child is the one button difficult child knows I won't put up with.....yet. I praised both for the good things they did. Things might be getting better in our house (hold my breath).
