Kari has ODD

After going to the Y this morning I asked my friend Kari to do something very simple. It would have taken her two seconds. It would have been not only painless, but enjoyable.

But she chose not to.

I will have to consequence her.

But I'm not going to tell you how or when. Or her either.

But she will learn. ;-)

(Anyone want to guess what I have in mind -- or possibly give me an idea that's even better than what I'm thinking?)

I think you should be a good friend and be especially kind to your BFF. Those of us in the adoption world know that kindness and relationship is more powerful than any consequence.

Why don't you give her a big hug and let her know that you will always be there for her? That would be such a powerful example of friendship for the rest of us.

you may not want to sign it "anonymous reader" when your name is at the top.

My response:


and gag.

yawn and gag.

It wasn't me.

I would suggest that you call a treatment team meeting and get the input of many others before making any decisions about what would be best for Kari. Professional input is always better than what you, as a parent, could come up with!


Plus, I'm sure it's really all your fault, Claudia, and poor Kari is just misunderstood.

It would seem that some form of intervention is needed here
might I suggest a place in the country filled with blooming flowers! as I write this I could use a little intervention myself.... thanks for the smile!
