"Sometimes, despite this doubt.
The truth is also undeniable."
Hey Jenn-You've had Oscar for less than a month. I think he's doing pretty well, from reading your prior blog. Be positive and praising, and even though I realize that this is your place to vent (I guess that's what the internet is about nowadays), if Oscar were a child, you certainly wouldn't post things about how disappointed you are in him; you'd focus on the positive. I wonder if you tried posting the good things he does as an experiment in altering your attitude as well as his. What do you think?LoveUncle P
THAT is a really good point. There ARE some positive comments in the previous post. He was truly AWESOME this weekend! But thinking of it like a kid-thing helps. I wouldn't write the negatives of kids I'm working with at church, either. Thanks for saying this.Incidentally, I DO praise him a LOT to his face. ;) And at least this time I caught him in the act so the one (rare) reprimand was timely and hopefully he can associate it with the mistake . . .
