There's been some this week. Boy wonder (with lots of support and scaffolding) has signed up to The Princes Trust after being NEET (not in education, employment or training) for 7 months. Winter and Christmas is hard for him due to early life experiences so it's a case of playing the waiting game and just muddling through as best we can taking his lead.
This gives me lots of opportunities to highly praise which in turn leads to a nice breakfast and a shopping trip for the clothing he needs for the residential in 2 weeks time. This then leads to him seeing I can still meet his needs so the positives just keep rolling til the next blip.
Hopefully by then my resilience will be topped up and so will his x
