First of all, it was my suggestion to the PO about an ankle monitor. But, now, the more I think about it (now that I am not in the heat of the moment), I do not think this is the way to go. I work full time. My husband works full time and is starting his new position of outside sales in a week - this means he has to travel. If she is stuck in the house she will just have riff raff come to my home when I am at work. I have a really good son that I need to think about and I am refusing to put him in this situation. It would not be fair to him at all and heaven knows what trash she would bring in there. So, I have put a call in to her PO. I would rather let her fall. She spent the weekend in juvie, she HATED it and she now knows exactly what it is like. She gets one more strike and she is going right back there and if she is that dumb, then that is on her and she can deal with her own consequences. It would be different if I was a stay at home mom and could keep an eye on her, but I'm not and I need my job. I called a bunch of RTCs yesterday and they told me that 1. she has to want the treatment and want to be there and 2. they only lock the door to outsiders - they are allowed to leave if they wish. That is NOT going to work for my difficult child. She does not think she has a problem and she will not stay if she is not locked in. So, now what? I am thinking lock up may just be my only choice?
