    kt insisted on going back to Residential Treatment Center (RTC) early today. There is a swimming party tonight & she wants to attend.

    However, I reminded her of the rule - go back early from home pass, lose outings & priviledges.

    That's not right, mom. That rule has changed.

    Took kt back; wasn't worth the argument. ktbug called me a couple of hours ago to scream at me. She wasn't being allowed to go swimming tonight. And she is angry :hammer: Go figure.

    Rules are rules, sweetie. I ended up hanging up on the child. Called back to speak with staff.

    Oh well, a hard lesson learned. :smile:

    I think it's safe to say she didn't think this one through. :whistle:

    Bummer - hope she gets it next time. At least that would show progress.

    Don't you love it when they have to face the consequences for their own actions it is still somehow our fault? My difficult child is a pro at that one.

    Good job on handling it so well.

    Apparently not. lol

    Life is tough.... Fingers crossed that the next time she verifies her understanding of rule changes. lol
