difficult child went to respite last night and today. It was his first time at this new place. It is a home rather than a center which he is used to. At the center he is used to it being all fun and games and they make food the kids like, etc... This guy said difficult child did have some problems. Swearing (big problem for difficult child-one we are not concentrating on right now for many reasons but we support the respite person accepting it), being very loud (totally difficult child), respect (yep that is difficult child), not wanting to help with cleaning and cooking (not like difficult child)and problems during meal times (difficult child is extremely picky). Overall, he said difficult child did better than most of the respite kids that come and he did have fun playing with the guy's kids. He called us last night in tears he was so homesick. This was suppose to be a positive first visit so that when he goes for crisis respite it is different. I think it went o.k. but not as well as we had hoped. He was a major grouch and very tired when we picked him up. For us it was a very relaxing 24 hours. I wish it had gone better for difficult child but he doesn't sound like he totally hated it.
