Wow! January 13, 2010

Well, my friend, Mike and I had a 3 hour session of hashing through information. I am so grateful for her. She is breaking everything down into steps so we only have to work on a couple steps at a time so we are not overwhelmed by all the information. Wow! Is all I can say! AND she blessed me with some amazing potty training tips that she had gotten from her behavioral specialist. Double WOW! (Put timer on for every 15 minutes and then ask if the child’s pants are dry. Get the child to go every 30 minutes. When the child does wet himself, make him practice 3 times: From point of accident tell him pee goes in the toilet, then make him walk to toilet and make him take pants off and put back on (in the wet undies). ) Let’s keep our fingers crossed that this works!

So now I have Government forms to fill out (which I just finished) and now I have to get the official report so I can send it off. Tonite I learned that a Behavioral consultant is the key to everything else and we need to get a really good one. My friend is already a part of that community and so hopefully we will be able to make some good connections that way.  I am very excited and am so grateful that I have her to walk us through this. She was so encouraging and prayed for us. I know we are in good hands 🙂 .
