Thank you, Emmeline & E&A's Mom -- I really appreciate you taking the time to respond.  I'm looking at local pediatric psychiatrists now, just to get ducks in a row in case we decide it's best to have him seen by a professional.  At this point, the plan to to get Dr. Amen's package in the mail, go through it, make up our own treatment & discipline plan using his recommendations, and work the plan for awhile to see if it makes a difference.  If we don't see improvement,...
Thank you, Thank you everyone who has posted a reply -- VERY helpful.  Someone mentioned the self-esteem issues associated with ADD, and it hit home.  Yes, ds is always concerned that people like him -- I think because so often he seems darned unlikeable.   I am very heartened.  I had gotten to the point as a mother where I was really not liking my child much of the time, and that is NOT a place I want to be.  It helps that what we have always termed his "choices" (as...
Hi Fellow Mothering Parents --   My DS is 10, and has been challenging from Day 1 (wouldn't breastfeed, but that's a very old story).  Finally tonight after our Family Meeting, my dh and I looked at each other and realized that perhaps all of our parenting frustrations with our oldest child are not our fault after all.  This child has taught me humility more than any other thing in my life.  First, I looked down my nose at anyone feeding formula to babies, then...

This short dry time allows me to flake them rather effortlessly without resulting in a lot of powder. Then, back into the dehydrater they go for another couple of hours to...
Thank you, everyone, for all the information and inspiration! I am a beginner NTer, but dedicated. Hibou, I was wondering if you would be so kind as to share your bread recipe/procedure? It sounds wonderful. My ds is sensitive to wheat, so I'd probably sub with spelt. Do you think it would work ok? Thank you!
