difficult child called the temp. agency that let him go last week. He apologized and asked for another chance. He starts work on Wed. but only 16hrs/wk as opposed to 36 hrs. One step at a time. He stepped up and did the right thing a moved a little farther along on the road of being a young man of character as well as learning a life lesson about spouting off his mouth at work. He knows he is being given a second chance. He can't blame anyone but himself(which he hasn't in this case) I think and hope he realizes how close he was to having a different life than he aspires to. Humility is a good thing but character is better. I am satisfied that he is doing what he needs to grow and do and be. So we stumble forward a little bit.
