This child is very very difficult to parent. Sometimes...I would like to put him in a soundproof, padded room for a few hours. Poor kid. He is too much like a male, middle-child version of myself -- everything is just really hard for him. All I can say is that God must capture this person - body, soul, and mind - when he is very young, or it is going to be a long, hard row to hoe (for all of us).
