On a good day, parenting will test the integrity of your character. On a bad day, parenting will test your will to live. Parenting children with trauma histories will cause you to test the integrity of everything and everyone you thought you knew, for the rest of your life.

Recommendations from the Psychologist

Aspie Boy's psychologist finished the annual evaluation that was prompted by his recent outburst at school in which he protested bullying by declaring it was the President's fault and that since the President hadn't prevented the bullying, the President should be *censored*[1]

The staff recommended this text on social stories and and Mandala coloring pages to have children color while discussing social stories.

Just thought I'd pass on the resources!

[1] he said he wanted to harm the president, well, kill him, actually, but I'm nervous typing that on the internet because even though a 9 year old kid with special needs isn't really going to act out that aggressive thought, that doesn't mean the feds aren't looking for rogue terrorists by screening the internet and blogosphere for suggestive comments!
