Two things about trying out for sports. Either she is upset because she didn't make it or she makes it and she quits or gets kicked off because she can't get along with the other players. This year she made the 8th grade basketball team. I am happy for her, because she is so excited. It will be good excercise and I am praying that this year things will be different. Though right now, it is not optimistic. She actually does pretty good, the problem comes in when other kids hog the ball, or get smart, then she will really let them have it and it doesn't matter when or where. I cringe as I say that. Been there and don't want to go thru it again. Every year, when school starts she is full of what I think is anxiety, and while if she holds it together at school, she can't hold it together for the rest of the night at home, and vice versa. Does anyone have this issue with their difficult child's. It does seem to taper off in October and November, but right now on September 1, she's driving both her fostermom and me nuts. I just found several text messages where her language was awful. I can't believe she didn't delete them. She used my phone because I refused to pay her phone bill with her attitude. So she snuck mine. Busted. Oh hurry up child turn 18 years old please. Pretty please?
