As I am reading all of the posts here, I have many thoughts running through my mind. One thought I have is, do any of these "difficult children" ever come around? Please don't think I'm judging or insinuating that the "battle" is not worth it, but I have read many, many, many threads here and it appears that we (parents) have fought so hard for our children and many of them continue to be "difficult children" as adults. Do the treatments work or are they just postponing the inevitable? Or, are many of those who are here parents of "difficult children" who simply haven't come around? I am not trying to be negative at all, I've just noticed that I haven't read many "success stories".
