why is it that everyone calls it food for thought? well here is my food for thought my daughter is coming home after being gone for over 7 mo visiting family up and down the west cost. several things have gone on scents she has been gone. one my girlfriend and have gotting closer then we have ever been, there is no real big fighting and we just works together. it reminds me every day why I fell in love with my girlfriend in the first place. the other 2 things that big have happen in are house is that my girlfriends parents have moved in cuz her mom is getting up there in age and was getting hard for her to take care of herself when her husband was at work. and last change in my house but the one I find most important my son has come out of his box. he more open and has grown so much.
so now my daughter after turning most of my family agents her and not wanting her back, she is coming home. so here my question or ask for help. how do I keep my house the same? how do I keep out the crazy? she hurts her brother if she gets a min. she has fits when the focse is not on her. she has what the doctors call the worse case of ODD they have every seen.
and for the ones that don't know what ODD is here is it is all short and sweet.
as an ongoing pattern of anger-guided disobedience, hostility, and defiant behavior toward authority figures that goes beyond the bounds of normal childhood behavior. Children suffering from this disorder may appear very stubborn and often angry. Common features of oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) include excessive, often persistent anger, frequent temper tantrums or angry outbursts, as well as disregard for authority. Children and adolescents with ODD often purposely annoy others, blame others for their own mistakes, and are easily disrupted. Parents often observe more rigid and irritable behaviors than in siblings. In addition, these young people may appear resentful of others, and when someone does something they don't like they prefer revenge over more sensitive solutions.
so now any thoughts?
by the way we are on day 3 of keeping track and working with each other to loses weight and its working out great. we even went out walking a little. I feel great and I can tell my girlfriend feels good to I can see it in her face.
