    One of the moms here suggested telling my difficult child to say something over again if he's too loud or obnoxious... I tried it last night and it worked. Doesn't mean it will always work, but the first time worked like a charm. Also, now I prepare myself with-the word NO, so that no matter how hard he asks, I start out with-that, and then set conditions where he can earn something. I used to waffle and think aloud, and that was a huge mistake. He took it for weakness. :frown: :eek:
    I just wanted to say thank you all for being here! :biggrin:
    Two more mo's til he's tested for Asperberger's...
    The kids are on winter break all next wk. :eek: Part of that will be spent flying out of state to my f-i-l mem. svc.
    I'm sure I will check the board for help while I'm there!
