Of course this is total avoidance on my part - setting goals - because here are the goals I want - I want him to communicate with me - tell me what he's feeling, ask me for something specfic - tell me that he's excited about something, or wants to do something together. I want to got to a restraunt with him and have him eat what ever he wants! I want him to have friends over, and get in trouble for not being home in time. I want him to have a girl friend...and wonder how he's going to make enough money to go to prom. I want him to make the state finals in swimming, and have to choose which college he is going to attend.
I want to improve his communication and leisure opportunties (computer games, drawing, building, anything other than watching movie clips). I want him to poop in the toilet - but you wont be able to work on that as it is a 'home' activity. I want him to develope his food choices - fruits, veggies, pasta, salad, hot dogs, hamburger....something besides chicken nuggets and chips. I want him to be more involved in the community. I have told you how much he loves (or hates it when the sheets are off the bed) to pull the sheets and covers up on the beds at home - great attention to detail. I'm thinking having him in the food industry would not be a good fit.
Lets keep up the 'stamina' program - I would really like to develope this and be able to share it with others as an option. - Laura
I agree Laura...
I know how awesome it would be for him to do all those things. Baby steps. If we shoot high we will get amazing things out of him.
I will call you tomorrow
