difficult child 1 who some of you may remember from this thread has be getting better and I mean better. I held back for a while because I was nervous that if I talked about how well he is doing then he would revert just because I said it.. difficult child 1 hasn't hit anything or been violent in over a month. The lying and debating are both getting better and he wants a job!! Get this....he is even being reasonable with difficult child 2 He has made deals with him and followed through with the deal even if difficult child 2 did not! He is working pretty hard with his psychiatric and it seems to be paying off. He has even been working on how to cool his temper...now I am not saying that he doesn't have his moments but he is really working and he hasn't hit anything in over a month....that in itself is amazing coming from the kid that would punch the stone wall at least once a week.
