Update on Brady

SO many of you have been asking how Brady has been doing and I'm happy to report....TONS of improvement. In the last week and a half he has had virtually no meltdowns and has been sleeping better then normal. So...don't know if it was the sugar but it seems to totally be helping him NOT to be having it. I also have limited his dairy dramatically. There were a couple of times that he did get very flustered which normally would have resulted in him going into a rage and screaming but we just handled the scenario much differently. Instead of seeing it as disobedience and coming down very hard we literally just acted like it was his temperment and talked him through it and it never elevated...he was able to explain what was wrong without yelling and crying. So...much joy.

I really do think sugar makes it so hard for kids to sleep - but as for the other stuff, it's very likely he was just feeling really mis-understood! :) Glad to hear all is well!

Super encouraging to read this post to hear that Bradyen is doing much better and as parents, you are finding different ways to help him express himself without a complete meltdown. :)

WOW! Yay! that sugar as Cari says is EVIL. I recently found out I can't eat artificial sweeteners. Or at least I can't eat much of them. Make sense that Bray would have an intolerance to sugar.

Way to go, taking him off sugar is a dream come true of mine. How I hope more of my family will cut back their intake of it and other sweetners, as well. I am so thankful for Brady's improvement. Tell him GranJan loves him, please.
