Re: What would you do?

I get it OP. I have a 10.5 yo 5th grader who has ADHD. If I had spent the time and money to get him a costume he had specifically requested and he went and lost it, I would be unhappy about it. If he acted like it wasn't a big deal and it didn't even bother him that he had basically thrown my time and resources down the drain, I'd be more than unhappy. We've been dealing with selfishness and ungrateful attitude around here a bit recently, so that colors the way I see a lot that he does these days.

We recognize that he struggles with ADHD, but that doesn't give him a free pass to just not care about when he obviously messes up in a big way.
