get it! This morning he was in a horrible mood, swearing, refusing medications etc...About three minutes after his pleasant (not) outburst he is demanding help with his tamagatchis. Geez, difficult child I don't feel like helping after you yell and swear at me. He just keeps demanding, I, of course, keep refusing. Tonight after school he again goes into a rude, disrespectful tirade and then immediately wants me to play a game. Totally doesn't understand why I don't want to play. It's so interesting to watch a difficult child's thought pattern. On the bright side-he has still been fairly violence free-going on about a month now. There are still times he looks like he is going to blow, and he is starting to throw a few things but, overall, he is maintaining and that's rare and good for my difficult child!
