difficult child is still in therapeutic foster care that doesn't seem so therapeutic, but he seems to be doing alright. He has been there for a couple of weeks now. It is a 30 day temporary placement. It was to give us some respite and get services in place so he can return home. Of course services are not yet in place and he is due home in a week and a half. Grrr. We need some help preparing for difficult child's return. What is your take on preparing the house for his return? We have cleaned his room, it looked like a bomb went off (I am sure many of you can relate). But we wonder do you think it is better to keep the furniture where it is for consistency sake or should we shake things up a bit and rearrange so that all the old patterned behavior is shaken up? We need to shake things up a bit to improve behavior, he hasn't had any problems in the f.home, but I am still rattling him and he gets impatient with me on visits and phone calls. I wish there was a professional of some sort who would answer these questions, but everyone seems to answer me with another question. There is no advice to be found. What do you all think?
