Hi Mom,

You definitely have your hands FULL !!!

I highly suggest the parenting books http://www.amazon.com/1-2-3-Magic-Effective-Discipline-Children/dp/0963386190

I'm sure you don't have a lot of time to read, but if you can squeeze this book in, you won't be sorry, it gives a ton of useful parenting tricks, tips and healthy positive advice that really works!

Its so frustrating when people automatically assume its "bad parenting" or lack of attention that causes a child's behavior - - its more like the child was born revved up, or needs something different. Teasing out what exactly the child needs can be challenging and time consuming.

((Hugs))

Hang in there, and hold your head up high !
