Oh where to begin...difficult child was great Saturday. Didn't have to be told 5,000 times to do something, was ok with his sister, played a card game without argument, and even had the patience to learn to tie flies for fishing! Sunday was a completely different story. difficult child was woken up by having difficult child dog jump on top of him (little took off before I could crate him back up). That seem to set the tone for the day. difficult child argued with everyone all day. Everything seemed to annoy him (everytime his sister would try to talk, he would tell her to be quiet please, then be quiet, then shut up). He would complain that his sister was in his space, but then move into hers and push her with his feet. He had to be told 1000 times to do things and then would respond by yelling (our favorite new phrase) "I KNOW". He had so many melt downs it was frustrating. Both SO and I were at the end of our ropes. We ended up in an argument with me yelling at him and then crying (I think because I then felt so bad for yelling at SO). I apologized to SO for yelling and he admitted that he just gets so frustrated with difficult child and that no way of parenting seems to work and he just doesn't know what to do anymore (the argument was over a spank on the compared to no spanking). SO and I were ok with each other last night and today ( I still feel bad for letting it out on him). AGGhhh...I think ODD kids are the toughest! I learned how to pretty effectively parent the bipolar melt downs, its this oppositional crap thats out of control!
