Today marks one month without TV for Tucker. This may sound bizarre, but one month ago Katie threw out the idea of turning the TV off and seeing if it changed some of Tucker's quirky/frustrating behavior. Well, one month later, I am beside myself excited with the results. Tucker actually seems not only comfortable but happy in social settings. He talks to people who talk to him. He doesn't shut down when he gets scared or freeze when he he spoken to. I am so proud of him and thankful to Katie for suggesting that we try this.
For the first few days I thought this will never work, he won't be able to do this. Then as the days turned to weeks, none of us even miss the tv and he evolved into this new kid! (Chanel and I cheat once Tucker is in bed ---American Idol and Survivor are back on...what are we supposed to do???) I don't even know how else to describe it. Tucker is a totally different person.
Stay tuned (get it?...tuned?...) oh, I am so crazy.
