Right now I feel like I can't do anything right, except maybe my job. easy child has been refusing to do his homework and now how several zeros in his classes. He has finals this week, and insisted to me that he didn't need to study. He says he has it all memorized. He's a very smart kid, gifted actually, but even smart kids need to study. He still refused and so far I found out he got a D on his math final. There is no excuse for that kind of grade. easy child is a math genius. Every year on the California State exams he scores in the gifted range in math. He didn't study so now he's stuck with a D+ for math this semester. I hate to see what his other grades will be. difficult child of course is my main concern. She has only been to school twice in the last three weeks. Several absences were legit. She had the flu. The other absences, not so much. For instance, Monday she overslept. There is no excuse for it. I set her alarm and turned it up to the highest possible level. I also called her several times to make sure she was getting ready, and she refused to answer my calls. My mom offered to take her to school and she refused, saying she didn't want to go half day. Tuesday she missed the bus because she was looking for her headphones. Once again, my mom drove all the way down there and once she got to our place difficult child refused to go. She said she would not go to school without headphones. Today difficult child once again overslept. Again, no excuse. Her alarm was set, and both my mom and I called her several times. One time it went straight to voicemail so I know for a fact difficult child purposely turned off her phone. My mom is now refusing to pick her up and take her to school today. I can't say I blame her. She drove all the way to my house yesterday only to have difficult child refuse to get in the car. So I have a kid who refuses to do homework and a kid who finds every excuse in the book not to go to school. I have had social services called on me twice for having a "dirty" home. When the social worker paid us a visit last week, she asked me what all the medications on the counter were for and wanted me to list each specific one. I was super embarrassed to have to tell her that I am bipolar with anxiety and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), difficult child is bipolar, and easy child has Asperger's and ADHD. We sound like a nuthouse. She's probably wondering why my kids are even living with me. I work hard at a very stressful job. I make my kids very nice dinners, I do all the laundry, I do all the cleaning, I pick up after everybody, I buy nice gifts. Yet I feel so darned incompetent right now. Hopefully soon I will be in a better place cause right now I just feel so useless.
