Talking it out

I have an appointment this afternoon to go talk to Matthew's psychiatrist. I hope he can help me figure out how to deal with the recent escalation of his issues.

We had a fairly good weekend with him, but had taken away a lot of things for him to 'earn back' with good behavior in school. He put his transformers, puzzles and dinosaurs in bags, and had no TV or computer games. He couldn't care less. Doesn't upset him at all.

Thursday or Friday night, he came downstairs a bit after bedtime and told me 'I don't deserve to be in this family.'. It's incredibly hard to see this behavior and not know how to handle it.
