we will have a real crisis plan in place for difficult child. The short of it is if he show any physical aggression to husband or myself he will experience Stop the World for an entire day. Nothing fun, you know the drill (we've done versions of this in the past but it's a bit different). If he continues with any more violence he will go to crisis respite. It sounds like a good plan. It is also the place difficult child will begin to go to for regular respite. The first time he goes will be for fun. If he has to go for crisis, the guy will let difficult child how he isn't happy to hear he was violent so he will not be doing the usual fun stuff. He will have chores or can choose to just be bored. There will be very little for him to do, the other kids I guess are good at not interacting when children are there for crisis respite. It is so good to have the crisis respite to back us up. Before if we did anything similar to stop the world, we didn't have any back up so this will be very good, at least I'm hoping so!
