Our home program took a 1 yr break. We had a lot of transitions going on, lots of changes that I even had a hard time handling....and the outcome was our program completely stopping as far as the playroom. (still use principles outside)
Of course, I've felt a lot of guilt over this, which moved into acceptence and just a want to really get back at it, even if it was only a few hours a week! I love my son, he HAS made huge changes since we began when he was 3yo (now almost 7!).
My other personal "hang up" is my husband. I sent him to start up in the hopes that he would become motivated and be ready to help. The first year and half, I did the program by myself with some very special volunteers because he was in Iraq with the Army. Him going to start up was to help him understand my huge new attitude and love for helping Brenden in this special way, and help bring him into the fold of what we were doing. He came back from Start-Up, helped in a set way...and then his motivation totally disappeared and he withdrew from helping at all. I have had anger and remorse over that, which I let personally change my want and drive to be in the playroom. I think ths single issue even drove me to stop doing Son-Rise in the playroom because I have this solidity that we should be a team, but we aren't.
Any coins of wisdom would help. I'm going to work on talking to my husband about this in the right setting and with the right attitude.
