    I was looking into the web sites of the High Schools.
    This was the Quote of the week. I do believe this is difficult child's biggest struggle.

    The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.

    Truer words were never spoken. Thank you for sharing that, KJs.

    Absolutely true.

    It's hard to maintain a correct attitude, though.

    Or even to know what the correct attitude would be, sometimes.

    For me it is, anyway.

    That is so very true.
    When I'm struggling to adjust my attitude, I ask myself 2 questions:
    1) Is this person/thing/situation worthy of my anger, sadness, etc?
    2) Will getting angry about it help the situation or make it worse?

    (Of course, sometimes I go off like the proverbial erupting volcano, but these questions have helped me maintain...or claw my way back to...equilibrium when doing otherwise would have been bad for me and my family)

    Thanks for posting this.
