I not only agree - I urge anyone who takes things personally to just try it. I promise, you will have a happier life. It was the very best thing I have ever done for myself. I lost about 99% of my anger because it's only personal about 1% of the time, not the 100% that people imagine.
I'm actually 75% natural and 25% polyester.

Absolutely not. I went to get a Mystic tan (one of those spray on tans) because I thought it would be fun to try. They wanted a fingerprint and I refused.
This is the first year that my DD asked why we had so many police at the synagogue. I didn't know what to say except that they were there to keep us safe. I hate it. And I have been to that synagogue in Rome and I know exactly what you mean.
Hi Sunnmama! I just saw this post. First, the link you provided in your last entry isn't working and I would really love to see what you are referencing. If possible, could you fix it? My DD has the same behavioral issues as yours (we discussed this several years ago) and I do find that my daughter struggles mightily still with impulse control. She's pretty good at school but it's almost as if she stockpiles her frustration at school and unleashes it when she gets...
For me, the simple way to look at it is if I visualize "sides" and power structure. With discipline, my DD and I are on the same side, looking for a solution. There is a less obvious power structure. With punishment, I am on one side and she is on another. I am the one in control and she is the one who has no control.

I'm also going to chime in on the side of urging a diagnosis and OT. There were many behaviors that DD had that I didn't realize were sensory related and it was immensely helpful to me to see that they were not in her control. If she hadn't been in the right kind of OT for her then she would never have made the kind of progress that she did. OT is very specific to each child and I would hesitate to recommend activities unless I knew exactly what types of issues you...
