Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

I am near the end...

We had the police out yesterday before the support worker got to the house. Konal is completely out of control and I don't know how much more I can take. I am at the emotional end of my rope. I feel like I can no longer physically restrain him and we are making no progress.

We are supposed to be going camping for Cub Scouts tonight. I was determined to go no matter what because Konal's behaviors were centered around avoiding going. Konal refused to go to school, though, and kicked me in the knee- again.

I am not injured, but I am sore, and am not up to the physical side of camping. I am thinking that I will take just Aidan out for the day tomorrow, but not Konal. My problem is if that is giving in to Konal? His behavior achieved his goal...

I just know I have been near tears all day and I am very close to having a breakdown myself. I am dreading Konal coming home from school.

Aidan saw the neurologist today. tentative diagnosis is migraines, but he is having an MRI to make sure.

I am going to go drown my troubles in chocolate.
