I just don't know what to do. Over the last year (since we got custody), I have talked to and gotten advice from therapists, doctors, police, local Children's psychiatric hospital. (which he has stayed at several times), you name it. No one has helped or given any advice that has helped us. He has spent several short stays at the local psychiatric Hospital after particularly bad violence, but no long term treatment is available there. They told me that if he had medicaid, it would be no problem, but no private insurance will pay for long term treatment. His therapist says that we have made progress, but honestly I am just not seeing it. I almost wonder if she is saying it to make herself feel like she has helped. The school acts like somehow his problems and extensive absences are our fault. The guidance counselor was almost insulting in the way that she tried to give me parenting advice. During our parent teacher conference last week (which included 10 school employees including the social worker) they strongly urged us to do anything needed to keep him from being absent, because he is sooo far behind in school. Now the problem.... He became angry this afternoon...during his time out in his room he punched his bedroom window, cracked it then used a tiny piece of glass to cut long shallow cuts on his arm and hand. What now. Do I take him back to the hospital? Wont they just release him after a couple of days? Husband has no advice, no opinion. He is great if I give him a task, but he won't help make decisions. Been trying to find a support group for parents of CD or Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) children, but havent found one so far. I really don't know if I am the best person to raise him, but it looks like I am all he has.
