I know it's a little too soon to tell

    but difficult child started Risperdal again this last Wednesday and I have not seen one tantrum or loss of temper since. Even when Gramma told him she wasn't going to get him a Wizard 101 card (because I said no, long story) and I suggested an art pad or a drawing book, he rolled with it. He came home with a nerf rifle, ;) but it wasn't a game card, and no tantrum attached!

    A few threats, toward easy child, but nothing like normal.

    I'm knocking on wood here! Hope I'm not jinxing anything.

    That's a very encouraging sign! I hope it's the beginning of better days for you all :)

    Congratulations! Heres hoping it lasts. It is so nice when our unreasonable kiddos become reasonable.

    That is awesome! Did you praise him for handling the situation in a calm and mature way? Also let him know you are noticing a positive change in his behavior this week and you are proud that he has been able to remain calm and make good choices.

    As soon as I start to relax and we get this nice rhythm going, the old difficult child resurfaces.. he's back..
