>Noticed something on Friday, and paid more attention to it over the weekend. M has started repeating words and phrases four or five times or more. Doesn’t matter if it is something off the television, something someone said, or something he came up with on his own. Probably just a phase. 🙂
He was being especially difficult this morning. His spoon got milk on it, so he had to get his socks on. I have no idea why he needed socks for a wet spoon. Then he got difficult with getting his snow pants on and cooperating to get in the van. His siblings don’t like it when he does that. I don’t like it either, but recognize the mental illness causing some of his behaviors, whereas they just seem him as being difficult.
Now, how to educate them to see the mental illness as well as the behavior?
