And here I'd been thinking he was doing so much better.... Turns out he'd been given 3 detentions in about a week. He of course lied about them and I didn't find out until I got the notice in the mail. He's a sophmore and these are his first detentions. But that's just the beginning. He's not doing his work again, not paying attention in school, etc. Even that isn't the big problem. Yesterday he had a major meltdown and ended up screaming and swearing at the dean. His high school has two campus'. He's at South Campus. He gets on his bus there and it first goes to North Campus to pick up kids before taking them all home. Most of his friends ride his bus. Apparently there was some commotion with them during the trip from South to North. He says they were wrestling over a paper and just goofing off. The bus driver decided they were really becoming a problem and radioed ahead to have security meet the bus. He says they all got up to get off the bus when they were told to, though they did protest because only two were wrestling around and they were kicking many more off the bus. The school said he at first refused to get off the bus. Security got them all off the bus. At some point he may have punched the bus or a bus window (no damage). He says the dean and bus driver were accusing them of doing much more than they had been doing and all the kids were getting upset about it. At some point he got so mad that he lost it and began screaming at her and swearing at her, throwing around the F word and the B word. They called the police. The police just took his name and birthdate and the kids were all allowed to walk home. The school got ahold of my husband and told him about this. They want us to go in Tues morning to meet and discuss his suspension and consequences. He told her to call me about the time for the meeting. She said she would. Of course she didn't and now we have no idea when it is we're supposed to meet with them. We're both going to have to go into work a little late to deal with this and I'm pretty annoyed to not know when we're meeting on something so serious. I guess we'll just show up at 7 and hope someone is there. difficult child has never been in this kind of trouble in school before. He has these kinds of metdowns with us, but has never had one at school before. In his two years of high school he's had one fight and these 3 detentions before this. Of course, everything has been from this year. He didn't get into any kind of trouble last year. I really can't believe he did this. This sort of thing is taken very seriously by his school. I figure he's going to get at least a two week suspension, maybe more. I dread the meeting. What does one say when their kid has done this? I know it could be a lot worse and that many have kids who have done worse. Bt, this feels really big. Between the academic complaints and the behavior I'm now wondering if his medications are working. They had seemed to be working so well. He said he completely lost control of himself and he doesn't remember everything that he said or was said to him. It's just more stress....... Suspension means missed instruction and assignments, possibley being dropped out of driver's ed which means we'll have to pay for it again! Ahhh!
