    ...he's not allowed to go bowling with his co-workers.

    Is the boy serious?!

    Not, "When do I see the doctor next?" or "When's my appointment to get the rest of my teeth fixed?" Or even "When can I get this #$%^&*( cast off?"

    No. My boy wants to know "How come I can't go bowling with my friends?"


    Sigh...some things get better, others stay rock-solid consistent.

    Well, I can almost understand that. He probably misses them. Maybe he could go and just watch? Or could you arrange for some to come see him and have a snack?

    That's what makes them get into difficult child situations. Lack of normal priorities. These kids, even if they have high IQs, have the ability to prioritize of a challenged ostrich. Example: They are failing school, on the verge of getting kicked out of the house, facing jail...and they obsess over the boyfriend/girlfriend who is no longer loving them even if that person was the one who is responsible for their getting into so much trouble. They don't seem to understand what should be the first concern. Know what I mean??
