Our son is going in and out of defense mode. He was in nope mode after a burnout earlier this year. We are trying to push him very gently but not so much that he goes back into nope mode. The unpredictability is hard to live with and hard to plan around especially with a trip with extended family planned over the holidays. Last time he saw our extended family he was in a better state of mind so they will wonder what’s going on. We’re happy he has better days. Last week was his best week at school in a long time but now I don’t know if he’ll go to school tomorrow. I don’t know how he’ll do over the holidays and whether we are enabling or not. I guess it’s just a long road and we need to manage our expectations.
