I kind of have the mindset that (this may be horribly pessimistic) no matter how I parent, E is going to be messed up. Therefore I have stopped trying so hard and am focusing more on me. I am seeking joy and happiness in the little things and hoping that will carry over into my relationship with all my kids.
I do believe in the power of prayer. Please be praying that we can find a solution for Es many behavior problems at home and school. Things have been escalating the last few months.
