I have been patient with the teacher and aide. Now I'm thinking of starting up the chain of command. difficult child 1 had visitation on Monday. Immediately after visitation he heard voices. His behavior started to escalate. difficult child 1 told aide on Friday (while he was in hysterics) a threat X had said to him to physically harm him. (I'm assuming X said this on Monday.) difficult child 1 went to visitation terrified on Friday. (I didn't know about the threat. My mom calmed him down by saying she would call him everyday he was there. difficult child 1 told her he was scared because X was saying he was moving. X made sure the calls didn't happen with out lots of controlling and drama by him.) difficult child 1 came back on Monday saying what a wonderful time he had. Tuesday the teacher calls me and has the aide tell me about the threat. They want me to tell them what to do about it. Aide thinks she knows what difficult child 1 is going through because her parents are divorced. I tell the aide to call cps. I try to talk to difficult child 1 about it. He said "I'm fine. Don't worry about it." My mom has some info she wants to make sure cps hears. She calls cps on Wen. She is told there has not been a phone call from the school. Maybe its taking time to get in the system call back tomorrow. I e-mail teacher asking about it. I get an e-mail back saying the teacher told aide to call but teacher will make sure and get back with me in the morning. Teacher is also noticing much more defiance from difficult child 1. Mom calls cps today and is told school did not call. Its 9pm. No e-mail or call from the teacher. I'm livid. difficult child 1's behavior has been escalating since this all started a week and a half ago. Tonight he hurt difficult child 3 twice. They should've called on Friday right after difficult child 1 told them. Then called me. They are mandatory reporters!!! Now she has been sitting on it for one day short of a week! I'm calling the principal tomorrow morning. difficult child 1 does not make stuff up like this. Yes, he can get some weird ideas BUT those ideas are based in something that actually happened. Example saying husband shoved him into a wall but forgetting it was right after he had tried to hit a baby with a rock. And, he never ever says anything bad about X. He will tell all about the one time in his life that I spanked him (he was 4) but won't say anything bad about X. I can't say anything difficult child 1 thinks is bad about X. One time I told a therapist X was dating again and difficult child 1 started yelling "NO HE IS NOT!" therapist started laughing and asked him if he knew what dating was. difficult child 1 shook his head no. We've been waiting for 7 years for difficult child 1 to say something and now the aide is sitting on it!
