Day 9: A day for Best Buds (Play Date)

Taz and his best Bud Tyshawn
the spent time in the sand box,
playing ping pong, and
playing each other in chess on the computer
     I am feeling confident that Brain Balance is going to assist us in improving Taz's concentration, memory, grades, relationships, and self esteem.  And many other things! 
 Today was lovely.  Not ONE oppositional comment,
just smiles and kindness and even affection!
  The negative behavior has been more rare at times, but Taz does seem to be noticing the little things I do for him more, and he expresses his gratitude (at least today).  Part of this may be the Brain Balance Program, but another part is attributed to the Book we are reading together, "The 55 Essential Rules" by Ron Clark. 
One of the Rules is to always express verbal thanks when someone does something for you.  I love this book, and highly recommend it to all parents. 

"This runaway bestseller that's a must-have for every parent and teacher.  After his Oprah appearance, the book sat tenaciously on the New York Times bestseller list for 11 weeks. Ron Clark was featured on the Today show, and in the Chicago Tribune, Good Housekeeping, and the New York Daily News--not to mention the calls received from teachers and parents who want to get their hands on Ron's guidelines for teaching children."
