Hi pigless it's been an interesting first week took some people's advice and tried out a high-protein high-fat diet. For the first 3 days it seemed to go well then I did some experimenting with some grain free baking and Friday his dad came over and we saw some agitated Behavior. This is not uncommon when his dad comes over because it changes the routine. It seems his dad goes out of his way to be inconsistent that is his only consistency. After his dad left I caught him gobbling down extra baked goods and a few other items. I know he wasn't necessarily hungry and supper was quite filling. However so far he seems to be doing okay at school first day took us an hour to get into the classroom. She was fine until the rush of all the kids and then the newness of the classroom. He does have some familiar faces in his classroom and he was very excited to find one of his favorite people there. Teacher said he is doing well so that is a relief but he comes home and he drops all his good behavior. It's almost as if leaving the bus gives him permission to just be himself and to stop trying so hard to be good. My 19 year old daughter was ADHD and on a methylphenidate. His behavior when he comes home is right on par with why we gave her medication. He's never shown signs to really need such a thing. I'm trying to be patient. The computer is still such a huge issue he desperately wants to be on it but we can't seem to get off without Force. We set timers, we give incentives and we have even kept it for the last thing we can do at night. Nothing seems to change his inability to stop playing willingly. On Thursday he got the next DayZ screen time taken away because I literally had to go unplug the computer to get him to go to bed. He kicked he screamed, he called me names, he told me how he hates his family, that we all are a bunch of jerks. The next day (Friday) he had to be reminded about 10 different times why he couldn't get on the computer. He begged he cried he kicked people he was mean. And then I went and change sheets made beds and came back to find him on the computer. Getting him off was a whole nother ordeal. I am not sure why this I'll keep sending him off so much. This may be another post entirely. LOLAmity,
How is your little guy holding up? Can you go back to the roller rink if he has a good week at school? That sounds like a great stress reliever, except for me. I spend too much time on my bottom and not enough time vertical.
