Hi everybody! Has anyone had to cut their vacation short because of the behaviors of your difficult child? I know we only planned for two nights at the hotel this year on vacation because last year we had three nights and it was just too much for our difficult child to bear! This year was much better. We were able to do everything we wanted to do with the kids as far as amusements go and he did rather well. I remember last year one incident was when my difficult child went with my husband to the coffee bar to get me a cup of coffee and my son wanted a bag of chips for breakfast from the kiosk and when my husband said "no but you can have a bagel "(which he likes) and my son just lost it. So my husband brought him back upstairs to the hotel room and left him with me while he got the coffee. Well, I was drying my hair and difficult child was beating the door to the hotel with his hands and feet and screaming at the top of his lungs. My husband runs back inside and says "Somebody's gonna call the police. He is screaming so loud, it sounds like someone is killing him." I am like "welcome to my world, hon! This is a daily occurrence for me." So we made him sit on the bed in time out until he stopped screaming. That way he could hit the pillows instead of the door. This was when my husband finally figures out there may be a problem. That vacation was an eye-opener for him. Yay!!! Now we are on the same page!!!
