difficult child 2's counselor told me she really thinks he is not bipolar - just adhd and is bigger and louder. She said for him to make a reward sheet so that when he does as he is supposed to he can get a reward. Well - our problem is that his reward list is so unreasonable for us financially!! i told her this and she said nothing about it. She just said that we have to approve his rewards - well, we can't approve ANY of them! So he thinks we don't want to reward him! Every suggestion I make to him he doens't like! She told me that my parenting appears to be inconsistent, and I agree with her. husband and I are working on this and it is just overwhelming! Then she asked me what we are going to do about his medications - I told her his appointment is October 8 and we can't do anything until then. She said she knows someone we can take difficult child 2 to see right away - so I checked in to it and the person she recommended is only a Physician Assitant! first of all, I don't feel comfortable taking him to just a PA and second of all, my health insurance won't allow it. She acted like we weren't doing anything for difficult child by waiting until October 8 - but I have no choice. ARGH! She also suggested we call police when he becomes roudy or hits someone (has hit twice in last 2 weeks) and that thought never entered my mind. zI mean, police? What does everyone think?
