Hi All! I haven't posted here in a while. I continue to read when I can. My time seems to be spent homeschooling my difficult child and his twin brother and running after our now 4 year old. My difficult child has turned 13! Wow! This site introduced me to Ross Greene, PhD years ago. Since that time, I've read his books, gone to his conferences, received training in CPS and taken my son to the Center for Collaborative Problem Solving headed by Ross Greene and Stuart Ablon in Boston. We've followed the approach as much as possible. It has helped my family tremendously. It hasn't been the end all by any means, but it certainly has helped us. I have this site to thank for that! It is a great help to many people! We started homeschooling because my difficult child was losing so much self confidence in school. He did well academically, but couldn't meet expectations in other areas. We continue to work on things related to executive functioning and social challenges with the hope that he will go back into school at the high school level. We are currently taking it one day at a time. School can be such a challenge on top of all the other challenges we face. I was happy to see Dr. Greene's new book come out and address these issues. A friend and fellow parent has lined up Dr. Greene to be on her internet radio show and podcast to discuss Dr. Greene's new book "Lost at School: Why Our Kids with Behavioral Challenges Are Falling Through the Cracks and How We Can Help Them". I'm copying the information she sent to me. I think it will be really informative because as parents we can post questions to her site and she will ask them for us. There's a link to her site as well so that you can read about the event in her words. She has dealt with many of the same issues and understands these challenges. I hope this proves to be useful for us all!
