Consequences for DC with PDA, and handling a current crisis

So, things are pretty much out of control at the moment. I can understand the need for consequences and so on, just not convinced it's going to work whilst DS1 is in a crisis. Also, attempts at implementing consequences are escalating things, which is to be expected.

Just wondered what others think. I want to concentrate on understanding what is causing this crisis, sometimes I think it's just some kind of development phase, others a testing of the waters, but he really is not in control at all and nobody is very sure what to do.

Pffft. I found what I thought was that in my bookmarks but it was a dead link.

The joys of being back in the 21st century.

Yes, DS1 was predictably unimpressed to get home and find he couldn't use his computer at all. Even the giant cardboard box the postie had been good enough to deliver held no interest for him. The promise of having a go at gugl on my iPad helped him pull himself together. Pure novelty, though. Next week, he'll be straight into Plants V Zombies so he can feed all my chocolate to my snail at once.

Grr, mine just not interested. So just found out respite care not for family, doesn't seem right to me, we can't reciprocate babysitting favours for S2 and organising multiple babysitters at the same time is hard.
