Sunday

A Bright Spot

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there. We've actually had a good weekend so far with my Zach. Having a child with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) or any mood or behavior disorder can be challenging. It can make you forget the good days when you're having a string of the bad days. The last month or so has been a string of bad days and very bad days. This weekend Zach as done a 180 and it's been great. For him, he's been perfect. By no means is he a perfect child, no would I expect any child to be perfect. It's by making mistakes that they learn and grow. What has been so wonderful about the last couple of days is that Zach has gotten back to using his manners, remembering some of our basic house rules, and being kind to his 2 year old brother. Zach has been acting like the almost 8 year old he is, and less like his toddler brother. This is really what our goal is in this whole process. To get Zach to behave close to his age rather than several years behind.
