So 2 weeks ago when my difficult child was placed on probation, he was told that if he missed school or had behavior problems at school, he would be considered in violation of his probation and would be returned to the detention facility. School was closed the first 3 days for snow. Thursday and Friday both I had to go pick him up from school because he said he was sick. Amazingly, after a couple of hours of being home, he was much better. I told him on Friday that unless there was puke or blood, I would not come pick him up from school. Today, I get a phone call that he was sick and needed me to come pick him up. A staff person did witness him throw up. I really feel like this is just another way for him to get out of school and he made himself throw up. For all the been there done that warriors, any suggestions? I'm going to mention it to his probation counselor when we meet next week.
