Difficult Indeed

Irony: Chris nearly got a Time Out this evening and would Not go to bed because he wanted to read my copy of "Transforming the Difficult Child: The Nurtured Child Approach."

I am only on Chapter three of this book my mental health coach recommended (from the hotline). It's Good. The method has a lot of emphasis on Positive Reinforcement. And they discuss how not only can help the Intense Difficult child, but any kid. We've been trying to focus more on the Positives. There was a moment last week where he Volunteered to clean his room...we thought Oh My! Where is my Child? It didn't last. I need to finish this book!
But it looks like someone is trying to finish it first.
