Yoeli, age 8.6
First clinic meeting with parents on February 5, 2019
In a conversation with the parents on 17th February 2019 (two weeks after the clinic meeting) her mother, Mickey, told me that they’d started applying the rules of discipline. The girl’s reaction was very positive. She’s completely clean, but had to go every day to the bathroom at the designated time, where she immediately emptied her bowels – remaining clean until the following day. Yoeli is overjoyed with the change, and even asked to meet me personally.
On March 12, 2019 (a month after the first clinic meeting), there was a really thrilling meeting with the parents and Yoeli herself, at the clinic. She told me how she’s been freed from the problem and that it’s contributed to other aspects of her life: it has totally changed her life. She described the experience as resembling as a huge knot in headphone cables – that she managed to unravel. We decided to cancel implementation of all the disciplinary rules for the moment.
On 23rd June (4½ months since the first clinic meeting) Mickey told me that since our joint conversation with Yoeli at the clinic, the situation has improved even more because the topic is now completely off the family’s agenda. Yoeli still recalls now and then her huge sense of achievement when she overcame her problem.
