Just out of curiosity, at what age did you note problems in your difficult child? Our situation was a bit different in that the tweedles were placed with us at the age of 6 (almost 7). I remember that at the age of 7 there were so many challenges & no direction. Every professional we consulted was at their wit's end trying to "evaluate", to diagnosis & therefore come up with appropriate interventions. We've gone through parent training, ADHD, ODD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), therapy, cognitive behavior training, attachment therapy, hospitalizations, Residential Treatment Center (RTC), group home placements, etc, etc, etc. It's been quite the journey & we still aren't where we need to be. Though the last three years have been hell on wheels, I feel we're seeing our destination point, if you will. We know what needs to be done treatment wise. So...what was your journey? Are you at peace with the diagnosis, treatment plan & interventions for your difficult child or are you still searching? Have you found that you need to relax & try a plan even though you can't wrap your mind around it, just because you're too exhausted to look further? As I said, just curious. I'm noting many parents with children between the ages of 5 to 7 really trying to figure this out.
