    difficult child was at the playground with 3 kids from school. anyway one of them started calling him some pretty nasty names & he came home!!!!!!! Normally he'd throw a fit, scream, yell, & get violent. I'm so happy! The kid calling names has been diagnosis as ADHD & ODD so there have been quite a few fight between them. They still get to hang out because they have been friend for 3 or 4 years & he's actually the only kid willing to put up with difficult child for that long. Plus his parents understand when difficult child starts the fights. It's kind of nice to have a kid who's parents don't go off the deep end when difficult child does something awful.

    It is nice to have other parents who can relate and be understanding. I'm glad your difficult child has a friend with understanding parents..Way to go! Sounds like he is maturing. :thumbsup:
