I have come in here to escape, only to be followed by difficult child who is now standing at the counter with her back to me crying. She can't do anything. She can't go to school, but she doesn't want to do homebound or homeschool. She can't learn, but she doesn't want an aide and doesn't know how she learns. She can't do any of the things anyone suggests - she shoots everything down, without exception - because she "just can't do it". Every. single. night. This is all it is. And it's all negative and nothing works and nothing is going to work, and she's not going to be able to go to college or get a job or do any of the things she wants to do with her life. She doesn't know what to do, she says so, but she actively resists anyone making decisions for her. And by that, I mean she refuses to participate. You suggest ideas and she shoots them down. Then says she doesn't know what to do. Then she doesn't know how. Then she can't. I have no idea what to do anymore. And the thing is, nobody does.
