Why is it that when my easy child wants to play my difficult child doesn't want anything to do with him, and when my difficult child wants to play my easy child doenst' want to. Either way my difficult child gets so upset. My easy child seems to go out of the way to annoy his brother. I have talked to him in the past regarding his brother and how he processes information. Today when I picked up my difficult child from school he was in an angry space, I have learnt that when he is in these moods I leave him be until he is ready to talk. After picking up my easy child from his school my difficult child asked from the back seat if we could turn off the radio because he was feeling "stresses" and needed the quiet. I was so pleased that he was able to understand what he needed and was also able to communicate with us. My easy child then proceedes to sing loudly enough for us all to hear. A meltdown was on the verge. I again talked to my easy child and explained to him how proud I was of my difficult child that he told us what he needed, we needed to respect his needs. My easy child said he understood, but I see the resentment in his eyes.
