hi! I am happy to say that today was a really good day. It wasn't an easy day yet it was a good day. i watched myself all day long how i handled her and yea difficult child was def. rough. my approach changing doesnt' totally change her, yet this remove the emotion thing if i can keep it up is awesome. she also ate. not alot but consistently. yea she carried on, etc. etc. yet i ignored each and every behavior resulting in her eating. slowly and with alot of liquids yet still this is huge progress! easy child, difficult child and i had dinner together zero meltdowns, had the kids share washing dishes and drying together that went well too. i just sat in amazement. we even looked at pics together after. difficult child is now downstairs with easy child looking at basement husband and i decided to let easy child take over (it's unfinished) so her and her friends have somewhere to hang out together. they even got a free couch from somewhere. lol i just had to share it there has been sooo much negativity. to have a day like today and yea like i said still junk happened. the car broke down lol, dogs peed on floor. yet my approach to it all was different. i just let it roll. sat down with difficult child and made a schedule for bedtime and wake up with her. she seemed pleased making it. let's see how implementing will go. we're ordering a bunch of hand held things hard to explain that therapist said to get to assist with sleep when she's laying in bed. i am doing chore list next and letting them pick their chores for the week. so far soooo really really good. husband even got up today made me a pot of coffee and drove easy child to school when she ran late and than hung out with-me till 12 and went to work late. wish everyday could be this good.
