Do I really have to finish out the two years that are left on my "sentence" until my difficult child turns 18? Had a long meeting with MST worker, Ms Ally, today... and basically, she told husband and I that we have to "fight" more and try harder to bring difficult child around. We told her we are TIRED of fighting...and it would be easier to keep fighting and trying if difficult child herself were even the slightest bit invested (or even interested) in improving her life at all. She has given us the assignment of creating a "behavior contract" with difficult child. (Yes, feel free to roll eyes...) We are supposed to write out all of our expectations and all of the consequences for not fulfilling those expectations. She wants us to be very specific and put down each and every little thing - no yelling, no door slamming, no stomping around - and list a consequence for each and every little thing. And then, we are supposed to have difficult child sign it. And then, I am supposed to enforce this monstrosity of a contract by calling difficult child on each and every little thing and imposing the consequences that have been laid out. Ms Ally is very excited about this plan... and she wants husband and I to get excited, too. Excited? No way. Can I quit now?
