Change is in the air...

I've been listening to Dianne Craft's CD's called "The Biology of Behavior". I'm ready to start the regimen to see if it helps Scott. I need to do something. We HAVE to start making much more progress with WAY fewer meltdowns.

I taught him subtraction this week.

Subtraction.

He's 13.

It is going to be a hard next few years...but then it's been a hard past 13 too, so we are prepared. I feel like I'm constantly fighting. Either FOR him or WITH him, but fighting nonetheless. I can totally relate to Mother Teresa sometimes. The whole idea that I know God doesn't give me more than I can handle, but I wish He didn't trust me so much. It's a battle for his future-both on Earth and eternally, and sometimes it feels like the weight of the world. I find solace in the bad boys of the Bible. I know that's warped, but somehow knowing that David was a "man after God's own heart" and his own son Absolom tried to kill him makes me feel a bit better. Surely he was raised to know the Lord, and yet he did not follow Him. Each person's salvation is between that person and God. I can only do the best I can, but the decision is my son's, and right now only God knows his fate. I will continue to try my hardest, don't get me wrong, but I know that it's his choice. I want him to give his life up to the Lord SO badly. I want him to let go and let God, and let God's strength help him overcome what he can't do in his own strength, but for now, I am content to wait, and follow the advice of the resources God has led us to to help him cope better with the world.
Dianne Craft has worked with countless children who sound just like my son, and has had much success with a modification of their biology based on supplements, and that biological change lead to great changes in behavior. I need to try.
It's not an easy protocol because some things have to be taken 3 times a day, and that is not easy with our crazy life, but it MUST be done. Luckily you introduce one thing at a time, one week at a time, so it will be a long process, but we'll have a chance to see what works and what doesn't and adjust accordingly. Please join me in prayer that we see some positive results starting this week!
Pin It!

Stopping by and following from the TOS Crew Blog Walk.

We've used some of Dianne Craft's materials, but I've not heard of this. Is it new?

Praying for your sanity, patience and perseverance. Also for open hearts (all those who hear), receptive ears and for improvement in all areas.

You are loved for just being & trying. March on Mom!

Tonya-I don't know if it's new. She had it for sale at FPEA, and after attending every session she spoke at, I figured that those CD's would be a good investment.
I keep hoping she'll sign on with the Crew so we can review her products!

My prayers are with you.

I will definitely be praying for you! Hang in and know that you're not alone...

I look forward to hearing more. I've got to read some of Dianne's articles again and make a plan for Sasha.

I think of it often and it comes up a lot, but it is interesting that you used that Mother Theresa quote because I came across it yesterday also. That and another fitting one...If you judge people you have no time to love them!

We did the BIT and some other things with one of our boys and it seemed to help. Actually, another thing that worked great for us was neuro-optimal feedback. It does something similar to repatterning but without so much hassle. It does require insurance coverage or some extra bucks, though.

Hi. Would love to know how the D.C. plan worked Ior didn't?) for your son. Funny how it's impossible to find much discussion about it from anyone not associated with her...

Hey, how did this work out? I see you wrote this a while ago. I'm thinking of ordering her CDs.
