If you see the end of emotional breakdowns without wheat - so be it. If you haven't read "Wheat Belly" yet, please do. I read it long after I took my kids off of wheat, but it had a perspective and information that was new to me, and I like new information.
As for behavioral stuff in our house - out with the grains, out with hitting and involuntary eyes-rolling-around-in-their-sockets - and I mean that literally.
I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
