So...considering what's happening now and looking back at my son's journals, I think I finally see a pattern. Can anyone tell me what it means when: difficult child is OK. Cooperative most of the time. Somewhat hyper. Hard to focus. Will do most school work. Stealing now and then. This will be considered "normal". *month goes by* difficult child is extremely hyper. Starts being "invincible". Little to no school work. Homework HAS to be one-on-one. Stealing more often. Mouthing things. *weeks go by...maybe 2 or 3* difficult child uncontrollable. Invincible. Running away. Physically violent at times. Spitting. NO impulse control a lot of the time. Throwing things at people. Hurting animals. Chewing things. Stealing a lot. Hurting self. Weepiness. Hate towards himself. *weeks go by...3 or 4* difficult child back to "normal". Rinse and repeat. Sound like anything familiar?
