Things are better

Hello Again, Bloggy Reader People,

Things are slightly better. Finally some calm and regulation. No longer hurting anyone me. Our therapist gave me a few tips to try, and one of them is already giving some results. YEA!

In the meantime, I have some window patching to do and screens to locate, some wounds need tending, and I need some major rest (restraining a 9-yr-old is a whoopin').

I just sat down to read your blog and saw what's going on.

I'm sending huge, big, massive, giant-sized hugs your way. I'm sorry things are going bad - but am relieved to hear that they've calmed down a bit.

Thinking of you,

Oh, man. If I had a dollar for every screen or repair, you know, I'd be very rich. Blessings.

Checking your blogging from a few days ago, you wrote about crawling. Crawling (If I remember correctly) stimulates the brain in the pons part. It's deep stuff. Many of our kids either adopted through international (mainly orphanage) or from the state for domestic adoptions, "skipped" stages, some due to being tied in a crib or plopped into a walker or swing because it was easier. With our backs against the wall and facing having to place our son adopted from Ukraine eight years ago into residential treatment, we tried just one more thing: neurological reorganization. I found out about this through the RAD yahoo group. We went to the Boston area to meet with Sarge Goodchild ( for an eval and training. He planned Alex's exercise program. Wow, what a difference! He loves reading and oddly enough, cleaning. If we don't do the exercises due to a crazy schedule, oh boy, do we pay! This is a kid on probation for assaulting his teacher at the age of eleven. If you want more info:

Hang in there, jeri

Oh dear.

I really hope that things improve soon -- especially that you feel better soon.

I am so glad to hear things are better. I hope it keeps up so you can tend to all the wounds.

Must be something in the air. I had to restrain my 13 (almost 14) yr old daughter last week. In addition to the bruises from the bite marks, my back and neck are all twisted up. She kicked through a kitchen cabinet too. *sigh*

Would love to hear the therapist's tips that are working. We ended up having to put our daughter in a psychiatric hospital. She comes home this weekend and we can use all the advice we can get!

While taking care of your bodies wounds don't forget to tend to your spirits/emotional wounds as well. When their behaviors increase you need more care yourself. Get some time alone to relax.
