<quoted text>An honor graduate at Daymar is not an accomplishment. Go to a real school, then maybe you can brag.
As for you, what college did you graduate from that you can climb on your high fu-king horse and look down at us common, uneducated folk? Because to be honest, if Daymar was such a bad school, there wouldn't be so damn many of them.. Any college is better than no college at all. Are you saying that OCTC is a bad school too? Or does that qualify as a real college to you? Just because she didn't graduate from an Ivy League school doesn't make her unintelligent. The fact that she worked her ass off, went to school, raised her son, and still stuck around to help her parents shows a massive amount of devotion to not only her family, but also to bettering herself. So again I ask you, where do you get off degrading her choices? I have no college education at all, you care to start in on me? I guarantee that I am far more intelligent than you are, and I have several IQ tests to prove it, along with a invitation to join Mensa. Yet I choose to do my own thing, and nothing you can say or do will ever make me feel like less of a person. I know that's how she sees it as well.. You are nothing more than some blathering idiot who gets their jollies by blasting people on topix, and maybe in some small form or fashion, your repeated attacks make you feel like your life sucks a little bit less. So, have a nice evening, as it were.:-)

<quoted text>I haven't graduated yet!! I graduate in July.
Being in any health care field is far better than working any where else. I am helping people better their life everyday... I'm sorry I seemed to have missed where you said you work...
I simply said I help the disabled elderly. I could be working anywhere... Doctors office, hospital, resting home... The list goes on!

I hope that you get over whatever it is that is causing your misery. I truly feel sorry for you. I guess you have to have some kind of communication which is why you get on topix? It's okay. I'm here for you to vent on. Whether that is you correcting my misspelled words, telling me I'm ignorant or, degrading me in any way.
You stated earlier that you where an honor graduate and as for my job lets just say I have a well paying public safety job. I have a very happy life I just don't care for bullshit.

<quoted text>your response while not attacking her was an attack on other parents and an uneducated opinion is ignorant that's what ignorant means. It is funny that you say you are an honor graduate yet you used wandering instead of wondering. Your spanking comment just goes to show you really have no clue that is an outdated method that is over used by lazy parents.
I got my ass whipped so many times, my mom had a paddle carved specifically out of heartwood so it would stop breaking.. I feared that thing after a while, but you know what? It kept me in line.. I am sure you advocate the use of drugs that we really don't know much about their long term side effects and the fact that it alters our children's natural essence into nothing more than mindless, drug dependent zombies..

I will be graduating as an honor graduate... You pick up your cap and gown before you graduate. When you get your cap and gown you get all the tassels and ropes with them. I thought you had some intelligence? I wouldn't say where I worked either if I were you. You don't care for bullshit!? Why are you on topix? Most of the time that's all this site is, is bullshit! You being a registered user would know this.

oh sounds like somebody's buddy is here I think what this persons problem with daymar is that it accepts all has no real requirements for admittance and the whole school is just there to steal money from students with nothing for them to show for it. A real school's credits transfer, a real school is fully accredited, a real school has admission standards, a real school takes years to get a degree not months, and a real school doesn't over charge as much as daymar. If you where really as intelligent as you say you are then you wouldn't haven't made the IQ statement that is just you trying to make yourself feel better. You are getting on to someone for attacking her yet I have seen her attack many others on here and I have even seen you attack others. People who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

I have a bachelor's degree from a four year university. And it is safe to say that you are no where near as smart, or educated, for that matter, as me. Your previous post about ODD proves that.

I get off criticizing her because she started bragging about being an honors graduate from a school where any idiot with a checkbook could do well. Then, she turns around to say that she hasn't graduated yet. So, that would also make her a liar.

Why? I am not scared of your comments, I wasn't trying to make myself feel better, simply stating a
fact.

Obviously, you didn't read her previous post.. She got her cap and gown and tassels. She didn't know she was honors until they told her. So who makes you the defender of everyone else? Let them say their own crap. I say live and let live. If you don't like what she has to say about someone else, don't read it. If she isn't attacking you or yours, don't jump her shit. And what was my mistake in my post? I simply stated my opinion.. You do know what an opinion is, right? I am entitled to one

Just going to leave this little comment here..

Wow I really appreciate the input of someone who has been there and can now express the frustration and feelings that my son is probably having. You said that you "didn't know how not to be the boss", how did you learn that? What could your parents have done to help you? What do you mean when you say they need to learn that there are actual consequences? Do you mean that parents should give more consequences or that we should back off and let life give them consequences? When he is throwing a fit, screaming, and it goes on for over an hour, disrupting other people, etc. how should I handle that? My son's behavioral coach told me that I tend to praise good choices and actions too much. Do you agree that it is possible to give a child like this too much positive attention? How can I help my son learn the boundaries? I don't medicate, but I am quickly running out of options. There is little to no sleep at night because I can't trust him to stay in bed. I've tried melatonin, didn't work. We do not watch tv very much at all normally. My grandmother is in the hospital, and so he has been watching a bit more than usual while I'm trying to help with her. But normally it's not even a daily thing. I have just never seen a child be that focused on throwing a fit. And it escalates if I ignore it. It starts as whining, and goes into crying, and then to screaming. He will sometimes watch me to see my response. I am definately not against spanking when necessary, but it litterally has NO effect on him. He continues to scream, and when the spanking is done, he will ask for whatever he wanted in the first place, and if I say no, it's right back to screaming. I am very consistent, I am fairly strict, and I honestly just don't know what to do. Do you have any more advice that would have helped when you were a child? I'm sorry to dump all this out like that, but I really appreciate your straightforwardness, and I have obviously not found what works for my son yet, so I would welcome any advice. If you see something I said that I should be doing differently, PLEASE point it out. I want to be the best mom I can be.

Your "opinion" largely disagrees with the psychological community. Oppositional Defiant Disorder is a recognized psychological disorder outlined in the DSM. So, your opinion disagrees with all of these doctors that devote his/her careers to studying.

No amount of "ass whooping" will cause a child with ODD to change behaviors. There is usually an underlying disorder like ADHD or depression that comes with the ODD. Doctors may use medication to treat those underlying disorders to help with the ODD. There is absolutely nothing wrong with treating a proven medical condition with medication. Are individuals that take medication to control blood pressure also lazy?

So, maybe I wouldn't disagree so much with your opinion if it wasn't a judgemental, uneducated one. You may have had ADHD as a child, but you must realize that every case is not the same as yours. Frustrated parents don't need you saying that their children's problems are caused by not letting their kids run free or not spanking them with a paddle.

Please, please just read the Dr. Green book before you consider any advice from this individual. I may have gotten side tracked with the nonsense about judgements against ODD, but I have done research, and I am in the same situation as you.

Talking to any of these women other than the op of whom really wants to help her child is like talking to a brick wall. "They" keep saying the same thing over and over again. I wouldn't waste my time if I were you. I just think its funny to read how they judge me from their small minded points.

Just help the op as much as you can since you have indeed experienced this yourself and your brother is also trying to cope with it.

Of course I am going to brag about being an honor graduate! Anyone would be proud of that.

And I have to be a liar! Along with being down right stupid and every other low life thing you can think of saying!! That's okay as I said earlier... I am here for you to vent on to get your frustrations out because I can take it. At least maybe your children won't have to hear all the negative nastiness coming out of your "mouth".

I definately will check the book out. I appreciate the suggestion! The library where I am doesn't have it, so I'll have to wait till I can get to a book store.:(
