My name is Emily and my husband husband each have children just none together. My Stepson is a difficult child. He has been diagnosed as conduct disorder with antisocial personality childhood on set. We are in agreement with the diagnosis, and have been through every medication available and nothing works. He has been receiving intensive family therapy for over a year, which includes direct support, therapy, respite. He has been in 3 hospitals, 1 (so called thereputic group home) for 3 months and discharged unsuccesfully. He has also been arrested for misdermeanors and has spent 60 days in a Juvenile detention center which he calls Day Care. The cops have been to our home and neighbors homes to many times to count. We have done everything the therapist has asked us to try. We were doing great and bammmmm he went and got suspended from school for the 2nd time pending a long term suspension up too 1 year. difficult child has no credits for high school even though he should be in 10th grade. Please tell me how you are supposed to sit back and let your 16 year old sit around doing nothing. Well my husband decided that he has to get a job and work full time..Well no need to say difficult child has no idea how to fill out an application, and even told 2 store managers he has been expelled from school. Sorry for rambling, so much to say (or vent). difficult child was arrested again after putting our house through hell once again. We went to court and the judge is holding him as a recomendation from his probation officer. So we go back to court in 2 weeks. We have had a long conversation with difficult child bio mom who refuses to have him back in the home, and we cannot take him back home either. So we have decided to put him in the thereputic foster home where he can stay for up to 6 months and than place him in this boot cam for 5 more months and than I don't know what else to do. we only have 2 years left and refuse to allow him to ruin this house any more. difficult child has long history of, PATHOLOGICAL LYING, STEALING, FIRE STARTING, ANIMAL CRUELTY, CHARMING, MANIPULATIVE just to name a few. Just a note we have another child in the home who is 14 and is so angry at everything that is going on. Please share any advise on therapeutic foster homes.
