Working it out...

Karen came today and worked with Lisa, Jack and CAYLIE in the home. For the kitchen issues, it was decided that it would be best for CAYLIE to be assigned a place in the living room rather than expected to "go in" under the table. This way, it won't interfere with her previous training for restaurant duty. She will now be instructed to "go to bed" on a blanket and expected to stay there until we are finished eating.

A little bit tougher situation is when CAYLIE is wanting to get a little closer to Jack than he likes and he needs to instruct her. He is going to have to learn the commands, the proper tone of voice and maintain calmness in order to get her to lay down and not bother him. Karen also instructed Jack to look away from her, avoiding eye contact, and say "down". This is a lot for a 6 year old to learn but we think he will be able to handle it. He is obviously attached to her as you can see it in his face when she comes in the room.
