Hi again from Virtues land! We're pluggin away, and many of my friends have adopted the VP approach with great success. Even dh is on-board now and has noticed the changes in dd's behavior. I had an audition the other night (fingers crossed) and arranged for dd to hang with Auntie, Uncle, and her cousin/best friend who is 4 months her jr.
