Okay as some has read I have a 10 yr old that was misdiagnosed with ADHD, depression, anxiety. They now tell me since being hospitalized for threats to kill himself, that he is mood disorder = bipolar, and not those other things, they have switched his medications and began a new one. I get to bring him home Monday night, hopefully, and we want to change some things at home that will help him the most. He seems to do good with a schedule, I noticed at the hospital everything is outlined for his group. Example: 7:30 AM wake up/take medications; 7:45 AM dressing time; 8:05 AM breakfast hall to eat; 8:45 AM - 9:30 AM shower, brush teeth; and so forth and so on. It does allow "free time" "school time" and all that. Now there were also levels, 1, 2, 3. Best behavior is level 3, which meant you were allowed to watch a DVD, have your "free time" including computer time. Level 2 meant you got into some trouble and you loose the ability to watch a DVD, still have free time though for sports, etc, but no TV, DVD, Computer, etc....and level 1 meant basically like grounded. No free time, you were to spend time at a table, or in your room and could read or draw I believe. I'm thinking I should do something like this. We have 4 children and things are chaos most days, between dr. appointment, counseling, orthodontists, the schedule is always a wreck, so I'm thinking if I have a set plan it would vary at times due to these appts. Does anyone use this type of thing? I've seen it on the nanny shows and stuff and it always looks great. What type do you use, how do you display it? I did mention this during my phone time with my son today but he didn't like the idea, but handled his emotions well. Stating, I don't like the idea, and before I get mad I would like to end the phone call. I said I love you and he said Good bye. Usually I would get, Your dumb, I hate you, so forth and a smash down the phone. So that is a good step I think. I hope. Thanks in advance for your help.
