hi so my easy child cheated on a state exam. i got the call this morning when i was in a cse for difficult child. needless to say they weren't accusing initially yet going to "talk" to her about it. after me texting her and telling her they would be giving her same questions again to see if she had the same answers she folded and admitted she cheated. it is a misdemeanor here in new york state. yet it's up to the discretion of the principal. her name will be forwarded to the state department, along with the other 5 kids she will have a in school suspension followed by not being able to take state tests at bldg level again until she proves for 7 months she can be trusted. worst of all easy child has no remorse and does not care and simply stated so as well. she attacked me verbally in the truck when we left, name called me my job what a bad parent i was, wow is all i can say. i came home and breathed till i locked myself in the bathroom and cried. i asked the two ppl in the mtg the state person they sent down to investigate as well as the principal they both said she's angry, defiant, disrepsectful and doesnt' seem to care. she wasnt' disrespectful verbally to them yet the eye rolling, not giving eye contact etc. so, needless to say she's 16 my height and not able to be brought to therapy unless she wants to go. you can bring the horse to water but you can't make them drink it. so, i'm at a loss. she's got alot of junk in there, internalizes for years and doesn't let it out and talk about it, so the blow up when it all finally comes Occupational Therapist (OT) a head will be bad.
