Well, difficult child will start therapy with psychiatrist sometime soon. His secretary will call me today and we will set up an appointment. I really hope difficult child will cooperate with him, I realize that he probably will not for awhile, but hopefully eventually. psychiatrist asked for a list of behaviors/sympotms they could work on so they can measure progress. Part of me wanted to ask, after 3 yrs why do you need one??? Then I started writing things down. His bossiness, his persistance in getting what he wants (if he asks a question he thinks it should be answered right away, and gets upset if he is told to wait) I want him to learn to play well with others and not brag about winning or being the best, and I want him to learn to say no to friends if they want him to make a bad decision. Are these realistic things to work on in therapy? This is our first go at it.
