    (I was going to type The Ups and Downs but Headlights beat me to it! :) )

    This is the email I sent to Difficult Child today:

    Do you have three A's going--sports, biology/genetics and English--or am I seeing things online? I may have to buy you a steak.

    Annnnd there are downs.
    I just checked Difficult Child's attendance. He was out of school all day today.
    I will text new girlfriend, H, to see if she knows where he was. :dark:

    Just my 2 cents. I would not involve new girlfriend. You already know he was not in school. You also have a pretty good idea of what he was doing. I learned the hard way that it was a surefire way to antagonize an already on edge issue into a full blown meltdown. Unless it is a matter of life or death, don't involve his friends.

    Lol. She's the only one who actually knows his whereabouts at all times.
    They have been fighting constantly. Not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing, considering possible outcomes ...
