I just received difficult child's 1st semester grades. He got 90 or above in Geometry, Science, Spanish, Tech Ed, and Commercial Cleaning. High 80's in English and Health/PE. 83 in Art. I swear I don't know why or how but when he's acting the worst, his grades are the best. He and I both are starting to rethink some level of BiPolar (BP) going on. It is so hard for me to understand why he STILL isn't mature enough to realize that he could have such a good future if he'd start behaving. I guess all of us parents of difficult children feel that way- at least I know all of you can understand this frustration I'm feeling!
