ODD on Steroids
Sometimes if I can take a step back I can actually laugh at how oppositional Tony is. He really does try to oppositional about everything and sometimes I can actually get him to laugh at himself when I switch things on him. Like I'll say, "you need to go with me Tony" and he'll say, "NO, I'm NOT going with you." And then I say, "Whew, good. I was hoping to take Dominyk anyway" (or something like that) only to have him say, "That's not fair, you have to take me" to which I can easily say, "oh good, that worked! I REALLY wanted you to come" at which point of course he'll say, "Well, you can't make me go!"
After I attempted to take his picture and he turned his head I said, "Thank you so much! That picture is really going to help me prove a point on my blog when I talk about oppositional behavior. You were perfect!"
And the look of confusion on his face was priceless.
