And was so close to having to call 911...man, it's like he KNOWS where the line is and he will NOT cross it. It took a lot of people convincing me (once someone TOLD me that was even on option) that it was ok to call 911 if he should become a threat to himself or others..and I finally have told myself..ok, I'll do it. But he just won't cross that line. And I know many of you will tell me I should be HAPPY that he can control himself to NOT cross that line. I did get the other 2 in my room, did manage to lock the door and stood behind it while he threatened to call the police (please do) and/or break down the door (again, please do) but then he finally went away and became calm. And like I said, I should be thankful that he is at least giving up (whereas 2 years ago these went on for an hour or so) at 10 minutes it's still scary to have to run down the hall, downstairs, get the youngest one away from what he's doing, run back up the stairs into my room and lock it before difficult child can do too much. Won't go into details but man, it's exhausting.
