@TexasSpringBride:  That is sooo good to hear!  I am so glad that FI is now accepting of you being a part of this, and is on board.  Also good that there is another outside person helping with this. (Child  Psychologist).  I know that you have been at the end of your rope, but really, you have had the patience of a saint.

I have been following your updates, and I’m so glad to hear that you’ve found a psychologist that clearly sees the issue at hand. Please keep us in the loop and kudos to you for sticking with it!

@TexasSpringBride:  I’m so glad it’s all getting sorted! Massive kudos for taking positive steps to getting what you and what your step-daughter needs.

I just wanted to note something about ‘There is also a reward board. I dont necessarily agree with this because we arent rewarding the good behavior of the rest of the children, except by doing a family day where they decide a reward, but the psychologist recommended this.’


In my job I work with a lot of children, mostly special needs and behavioural issues. One thing we stress is that each child needs an individual plan. We currently have one child on a very high reward based system, so he gets more rewards than others. It doesn’t always seem fair, but that’s what works for him. If you worry about your other children, explain to them that the reward board will help step-daughter with things that they are already able to do. I’m sure that they already understand that it will help her behaviour in general, and towards them, and they’re happy for that to happen.
