After having a REALLY good couple weeks (since I puled him out of preschool), things started going down hill Thursday afternoon. V is being very difficult. Nothing is right, he picks at everyone around him, cries over everything and anything, gets stuck on every events (real small stuff like opening the door, getting a snack, playing with toys, etc). Of course that puts the whole family on edge which does not help the situation. We all had a long at work and we want to catch a break on the weekend. But it is simply impossible because V is having an issue about something every 2 minutes. I just fabricated a cocoon swing that hangs in the living room . The idea was for V to have a spot to relax, without havin to tell him what to do and he can still see what is going on since the living room is the heart of the house. He loves it! But little problem: all 3 kids love it and now it just create an other reason to argue... I realize that V has to compete with his siblings, and it is not easy with his rigid thinking. But that is a fact, and I can't change it. We do the therapeutic listening, I gave him some one on one (went to the store and drop the dog to be groomed, we looked at the cats for adoption). But as soon as we get home: he is back to being difficult. Not a big tantrum so far, but I feel he is bubbling and able to be back to a calm state of mind. Any suggestions?? Tomorrow he has playtherapy (which hopefully will calm him a bit), but then he has speech in the afternoon. Speech is hard and he is getting more defiant everytime (kind of fidgety, goofy and sometimes borderline rude).
