between a difficult child and a easy child can be amazing. I took easy child, difficult child and easy child nephew (boy age 6) to Wal-Mart tonight. Nephew listened, followed directions, and even corrected difficult child. difficult child was having a good day, but still he always has listening problems. He is just inattentive and hyper, especially excited as cousin was with us. I was just blown away by how nephew was in comparison to difficult child. It reaffirmed my belief that difficult child is a difficult child. I guess I really did not need that, but it was interesting to see the difference between the two boys, especially since they were both boys.
