I just wrote you about an hour ago in a moment of desperation . . . but am proud to report, my Son went to school. I decided that this "was going to be easy". I went into my son's room, told him that if he was too sick to go to school, he was going to stay in bed all day with the lights off, and I calmly walked out of the room & shut the door. About 10 min. later he came down, partly dressed and said he thought he could make it. We hoped in the car and off he went!
Thank you for giving me hope. Even though I have all your other books, its only been with your last that I've really felt convicted to be consistent with "your" plan and not psychobabble parenting.
