    Kanga doesn't seem like she is going to be honeymooning as long at this Residential Treatment Center (RTC) as she did at the last one. They've already caught her manipulating and attempting to triangulate twice (in her 3 weeks there). She had her on-campus job less than 1 week before it became clear that she wanted that job (sweeping/mopping floors and doing dishes) because her new "man" has that job and she tried to get her shifts to be the same as his. Teacher called her out on it and then she tried to convince the rest of staff that the teacher has it out for her.

    Kanga dear, why would someone who met you this month hate you so much that they 'have it out for you'??? It couldn't be that she is an experienced teacher of mentally ill teenagers and just nailed your butt...nah, that would mean you'd have to admit you did it and you are still hoping to find the cracks in the staff.

    So glad this staff seems competent, caring and on the ball. I'm really liking this new Residential Treatment Center (RTC).

    It sounds like they really have their eyes open and stay on top of things there. Too bad for Kanga, huh??

    Sounds very encouraging! This may be a much better environment for her.

    It sounds as though she is exactly where she needs to be. I hope that she starts to learn to use new coping skills and to use those skills. She is truly blessed to have you and husband for her mother and father, whether she ever realizes it or not.
