Can you ever learn to trust a Difficult Child? My son has been better, but he still has his outbursts. When I am home alone with both of the kids (which is almost every day), and the kids are together in the same room, like the basement or one of their bedrooms, I am ALWAYS listening for the first hint of trouble. My husband thinks that I am ridiculous, even after he has seem me hear trouble coming that turned ugly that he admits he never would have thought would blossom into a violent outburst. He will admit that I was right, but he doesn't understand why I'm always listening. Do you ever get to a point where you can actually trust them? Where you don't feel like you always have to be in the "on" position at all times?
