Aren't children a blessing? I think life would be such a boring thing without them. My grandson started the school year with misbehaving and acting out. Come to find out he was off his meds. Mom found it too hard to give them to him in the morning. We got that taken care of. Yesterday there was an assembly which included awards for improvement in academics and so forth so far this year. My grandson got one and gets to have lunch with the principal and the other award winners. What a grand thing after such a hard beginning! I am so proud of him. Have your kids or grand kids done something lately that really made you proud? Don't forget to answer my other topic from afew days ago on my housing situation. Thanks. Oh, and my granddaughter is doing well too. How about yours?

My children are always making me proud. They can hurt you more than anyone in the world but bring more joy than anything too...lol...the double edged sword. My daughters have brought home wonderful report cards and are growing into exceptional young women. That's not to say they don't keep me on my toes but I agree that they are blessings. I'm glad to hear that your family is doing well.

That is quite an achievement for a child. His meds are so important and I hope he gets them every day. My boys are grown but they had their achievements over the years. I can still remember different things they did and I am proud of them. Yes children are a blessing. I did 14 years of day care and had two of my own. They kept me very well entertained.

You should be proud of 14 years of daycare. I don't think I could do that. Yes, I try to make sure my daughter understands the importance of him getting his meds. It is hard sometimes. She's an adult but acts like a teenager sometimes. She is bi-polar and narcissistic. Ugh! Yes, children are a blessing.

I have a daughter and a son and cannot begin to imagine life without them as I live for them. My son has OCD and it was quite a struggle but I put forth all my efforts and he has been doing well on his without ever using meds.

Well, I think your name on here fits you. Glad to hear you had little problem with your son's OCD.

Children are the best thing that happened in my life to me and my wife. My son at school keeps getting award for doing well and hes only 4 years old so that makes me very proud of him and my daughter is growing up fast too. I cant even remember my life before my kids were around, but obviously i had one... they've just taken my memories in a good way.

My son was diagnosed with ADD at the end of grade 4 after years and years of falling behind. At the end of grade 5, he was chosen for the Turnaround award. 1 child in each school gets chosen. He made such an improvement in every aspect of his life, including academics...he was chosen for this award. |We were very proud and continue to be.

That is just wonderful! I can recall so many assemblies with other kids being called and given the awards and seeing how proud and smiley the kid's parent's are. And now this year it was us. So nice for a change. And such a nice thing for the family.

Sounds like you have a good one there. My daughter, 39, is doing the best she can. She loses her patience with my grandson sometimes but I think she has alot more patience than I do.
