difficult child refused to go to summer school yesterday, and then went into a rage attacking husband while demanding computer time. A scratched up and brused husband called me from his car while i was a a dr. appointment. I called 911 and police paid a visit & talked to him. husband & I are separated, so I can leave when it gets too abusive, but he can't. He just doesn't know what do do anymore with difficult child. it never gets better, and is so sad. difficult child later in the day became abusive again, but not as extreme. He's contrite and police when the officers are there, but it's all for show. I don't know what the options are for getting difficult child out of the house living in some kind of group home or residential. he is 16. I am out of hope. I used to always have some glimmer of hope... now i don't. I am glad though, and almost surprised at myself, for moving out 4 months ago. I'm still close by, but my address to difficult child is a secret, and will stay that way as I need my own psychological/physical space.
