difficult child does this...it's like a cycle, but a LONG cycle. When he's not always fighting and actually calm..I call it his happy place. The last time I actually remember him being here was April of 2009. Stayed there for a few months..then cycled back to the challenging child he is. I know at camp these last two days he's been physically worn out and maybe that's what it making him be so agreeable. Like some of you, I am waiting for the shoe to fall. He should be physically worn out tomorrow, too. And school ended and he's in his rhythm of going to camp during the day (ie schedule) and his other parent came home and is now off again for 23 days (21 more now, work related) so maybe that helped, too. It's been scarily almost peaceful. He's not fought incessantly with the siblings or me...has started to, but when he's not on me ALL the time, I find it in me to not be drawn in and I just spoke to him in my VERY low and quiet tone and then it ended. He's still not on any of his medications and yet can control himself when he's in his happy place. It's times like these that I wonder if he really NEEDS medications at all. Just wanted to share some peaceful updates.
