This is going to be a really long break with difficult child. He is so far off. Yesterday was really difficult at my dad's (although he and his wife handled difficult child really well). He was so rude that husband and I were so embarrassed. Thankfully Dad and his wife understand. He is constantly bugging husband and/or me to play a game with him. We do but we just cannot entertain him 24/7. Plus when we are playing he is driving whoever he is playing with nuts. He gets upset and often quits if he is not winning. In addition, he does things like put dice in his mouth, blows on things and he does this on purpose. When one of us is taking a nap he will be extra loud or come in the room and purposely wake up the person. We are purposely taking naps separately because otherwise neither of us gets any sleep. The person not sleeping can occupy him for a bit but, of course, that depends on his mood. I really think having a friend would help him some. He really doesn't have any he does anything with outside of school. His social skills are poor which is one reason why. The last time he did have a friend the friend showed him how to access porn on the computer-sigh... For Christmas we got him a small tv with- a Blue Ray player for his room. We thought it might help him when we are sleeping (you know at 4 or 5 in the morning). We were hoping he would watch something quietly and let us rest until a decent hour-guess we should have known better. I know this is somewhat rambling but seriously he is driving us nuts. We have plans to take him to the health club a few times (he can play basketball there or swim) and to the movies but we don't have a ton of money to be doing stuff everyday so I'm not really sure how we are going to make it the next couple of weeks.
