Changed, sorry you are having a rough day.
I don't know what type of behavior challenges you are dealing with. Just want to share that DAIRY makes my oldest son NUTS. We have also found that the Claritin (or basically any allergy meds) affects his mood. We deal with a completely different
child when I have him off of dairy and any
meds. Also certain fruits. GRAPES make him nuts. I am beginning to question APPLES. Ugh... It has been a long road. He can be a great kid, he is so caring and compassionate. But it is like dealing with a totally different child sometimes. Seriously, like there are two of him.
I am confident (after being down that road myself) that at least part of it is Candida.
I have yet to put him on that strict of a diet, though, and as you know, that will be difficult to do to a child. I have been gradually making choices for the entire family, though, headed in that direction. Absolutely impossible to do with him, though, when they are handing him candy left and right at school.
His grades are straight A's. No issues there. I don't even know what I said earlier in the thread, but I don't have time right now to get into all of the many reasons we have chosen to homeschool. I agree with what you have said though.
Eli is... Eli. There are two of him also!
