Well, I am counting the days (JUST TWO THANK GOD) until my dear son gets to see the Pyschologist. I know it's not a nueropsych, but it's a start and a start we have truly been waiting on for years. Plus, I did express my interest in a neuropsychologist, so I will be pushing the issue. Also I sent out the request to the school district for the IEP so that we can get that sorted out as soon as school begins in just over a week. I even got the return receipt to show they got it (yay!). And finally I was able to get the The Explosive Child, which I've begun reading, but am waiting on my husband to read the first section so we can each do the exercises before his appointment. One thing I haven't been able to figure out is the sibling rivalry!! So I am asking you wise folks out there, how do you deal with the outbursts when the other sibling is doing the same behaviors (but doesn't ordinarilly) does that make sense? For example, one of the habits my son has developed is to scream and run away, so now my daughter who is OLDER will scream at me in the same way. I guess she figures I don't always do anything about my son doing it, so she can too. The thing is, when they do it, my nerves get totally shot and I so want to explode! Sometimes I end up yelling, which gets me no where but lets them know I don't approve (then they sit there with a smile, one or the other, and just scream little spurts back and forth) or other times I close my door and just try to recupperate in my room before I come out a little more composed. I am destroyed with this habit. So when the child who you are getting help for does something, and their sibling then does it, how do you handle to regain ANY control over the situation? I am getting walked on like a doormat right now!
