So since our meeting with the DA difficult child has gone to school willingly for five days in a row. She hasn't been in school that many days since the beginning of the year. I am hoping she continues to go without a fight. She scared me last night. Told me she didn't feel good, had a stomach ache, and didn't want to go to school the next day. I got very upset at her. Reminded her that it's her butt that's going to jail and not mine. She said she didn't care about going to juvenal hall. I told her she had to go to school no excuses. She begrudgingly agreed to go to school. I thought when I woke her up this morning she would give me problems. She didn't. She was up and ready to go by the time I told her to be ready. So I hope her missing school days are over. I am hoping she was finally scared straight. Such a relief now that the struggling is over and I'm praying it stays that way!
