On my flight to Kingston last night two women got into a verbal spat over the younger one talking on her phone during the flight safety instructions.

On de-planing, the older woman gets right in her face about it, and the younger one slaps her across the face, turns and walks off. The older one starts yelling that she's been assaulted and asks the airport staff to stop the other woman. To which they do nothing.

So she follows her out into the parking lot, and they continue arguing, and someone calls the cops.

Mrs. Plan wants to hang around in case they need a witness, I'm like let's go, we just spent 48 hours in airports, and let's not get involved.

Your Greg only has a few days before child birth. He will no longer be the Greg you remember. Time to trade up and let the idea of Greg live on.

Dog thought that Hamilton, a musical featuring black people playing slave owners, while never actually mentioning slavery, would be "a fluff piece on diversity."

I like both but in a bind I'll choose Mozart. I prefer the late 19th century russians. But its almost unfair to compare those different era.

I liked New Kids, Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls.

In his genre, Back is good. Easy to play too! (I played a lot of Bach).

But I find it a bit robotic if you want to just listen and enjoy.

Dog wrote:Hey D, does my daughter sound like your son? I suspect it's similar. Pretty smart, but with self regulation issues. How/when did you decide to have him evaluated?


my son's day:
my son wakes up (pre-pill) full of energy and raring to go. it's at this time that he is most bothersome to his sister and is often very loud. he is usually up by 6:30 am, even on weekends.
he gets his pill with breakfast and it starts to kick in within an hour or so. he's still annoying and still has focus issues, but it is better and he's a bit calmer.
the pills usually start wearing out in the late afternoon (i.e. when he's getting home from school usually) and he starts to become less and less manageable as the day goes on.
we had some issues with temper around supper time (just in time for me to see it when i got home from work), but we've since taken him back to the doctor and are in the process of determining the best set of medication for him.
in the evening, he takes forever to get going to bed (a combination of distraction and lack of will), between washing up, getting dressed, brushing teeth, etc.
then when he's finally in bed and my wife are ready to relax, he often pops up out of bed with a comment/question/general distraction as his body is still full of energy and he isn't ready to sleep yet.
he usually falls asleep about an hour after we put him in the bed for the evening.


similarities with your daughter:
smart
self-regulation (though i'd say my son is probably more impulsive to the extent we worry he'll put himself/other in danger sometimes)
controlling/argumentative (though i think my son is less stubborn about things, and usually just tries to argue / negotiate his way into getting his way)
full of questions

differences:
i'd say the biggest difference is that my son appears to be more of a ball of energy that flies in, does things for a very brief period of time and moves on leaving a mess in his wake and never ("never") stops talking
your daughter appears to be more thought focused and searching for answers.
my son seems to be satisfied with getting any response and moving on to the next thought, even if he doesn't get the answer he necessarily wanted, just as long as someone responds to him.


we took our son to the doctor the first time around grade 2, when the teacher indicated that it was interfering with his school work (really more was that she couldn't handle the questions/energy, i think) and that she felt his hand-writing was below average. i think we started him on meds in grade three, and the teacher supplemented that with some concentration aides (putting him on his own near her desk, giving him a timer for his work so that he could move on regularly). last year (grade 4) was a little bit of a back slide in that the meds might have been less effective and when we increased his dosage, he started having temper issues in the afternoon. it also didn't help that he had three teachers over the course of any given day. we're working on things to set him up to succeed next school year. i'm hoping the school administration makes an environment in which he can do better, but either way, he's going to have to cope on his own anyway.

so, long-story short. the point at which you should consider taking your daughter is the point at which her issues start to have an impact on her ability to learn and deal with other kids.

My 2nd is pretty normal I feel. Very smart. Great sense of observation (notices details like your daughter, somewhat headstrong too.. but can go back to "reasonable" pretty quick). He's like your daughter-light. He's 3 though so there's room for me to screw him up.

My 1st is a bit of a mess. Smart. Especially when it comes to creative/artistic side. He's also a pretty good reader (for his age). But really comes to life if you give him anything that can make music or to draw with or sing or dance. But he has these dark mood swings. Very negative. Loses hope in a situation very quickly. He's like an angsty-emotional 14 year old.
Except he's 6.
