So my current strategy is to sit beside J until he falls asleep. In the last month he has realized that he can make me react to him by the things he says. “I need a drink of water”, gets me to give him a sip of water. After that, I ignore him completely. He continues…I need to go pee…..I need some juice…..I need a book…let’s go downstairs….I no want my clothie…. I just read my book in silence. Today he added a new one, and it just about melted my heart. “I need a hug” What a sweet boy, he knows now how to get my attention!
