We are kind of on the same page. We didn't read the whole book but Leslie looked into it. It seems these days there is a "term", sickness, disorder, and of course book about everything and anything. Is there really something going on or is it, like you said, parenting/amount of sleep/etc.

We just don't know either.

I highly suggest finding a good family therapist. Our son has been "difficult" to say the least and things really starting spiraling out of control on our end. We sent him to camp over the summer and sent ourselves to therapy. Best decision ever. We really had a lot to learn about parenting. The biggest hurdle was to get it out of our heads that fairness and comfort matter. Once we stopped trying to be fair and stopped trying to make sure he was comfortable theings started getting better. He is still a mess (those changes take a lot more time since he is still growing up and changing every day), but we are in control and daily life is so much better.

Do you guys have this issue: With Kaydence it seems at everywhere (school, sunday school, w/ friends) she is a saint. It's just with us that we have all these issues, specifically when her siblings are present.
