Canyon started 7th grade, so worried and stressed about him, but he is doing pretty well. He seems to like school, that is a blessing right there. He really struggles, and we really have to stay on top of him, my husband is better at that then I am, as he is the type A person in the family. Sometimes he gets rather upset with me thinking I don't care as I am not as compulsive as he is. How could I not care as he is my son, and despite his handicaps and behavior outbursts I love him dearly. I am the one who has to step in and referee when those two start their verbal matches. But sometimes you have to take a step back and let him figure things out on his own. He is 12 and in junior high, we have to start giving him some room to try on his own, if we do for him forever when and where will the skills come from for him to learn to take care of himself.
