I didn't think of Once Upon a Child either. That would have been a good place to look. I contacted a Highland dance school and DD1 has been invited out there to take a tour and watch a class. The school has no beginner classes starting right now, so DD2 can't join in, she would just be too far behind, but she can watch and meet the teacher. DH is really hoping she likes this one, he's Scottish and wants her to try this.

I'm sticking with my decision to give the meds a try. Over the past 4 years we've tried just about everything else from behaviour specialists to child physiologists and have used every suggestion ever given to us from limiting certain foods, to timers, to charts and rewards. We have used physical force to get her to do what she needs to do, as in picking her up and putting her where she needs to be and hand over hand not as in beating her, and have tried just letting her be and doing whatever she gets done on her own and suffering the consequences. What else is a mom to do?
