The happy prison

“Little Big Man”s discharge was postponed from today until Friday.  He is refusing to speak to us even in therapy.  He is doing frustratingly well at the hospital but refuses to work with us.  Happy in his little prison, free from school or having to face reality.  How on earth do we compete with that?

  1. Oh I’ve been here, too. It took about 2 months at PRTF until our daughter couldn’t maintain anymore. I think it’s a survival mechanism. Or maybe they feel safer away from the intensity of relationships?
