I get home from this trip to find a nice letter from difficult child (really- not being sarcastic) but it included that there had been a riot at the facility and all the boys had been punished for it, including him, although some of them, including him, had not been part of the riot. Then he says the ones who were punished but hadn't been part of the riot were mad over it and retaliated. He said he flooded his room several days in a row and was now facing a charge for it. This isn't a street charge, just punishment like losing privileges in there for a while. Then I check phone messages and have one from him saying he has an additional lock down for 6 more days and to contact him. That seemed strange since he is only allowed very limited phone calls to me and I can't call to speak to him. Then I found a card with a new POs name on it in the door and a phone message from this "new" PO. I called and he said I needed to come to his office to talk about difficult child's case next week. That seemed weird because 1) why would his PO change now? unless it's due to me going off on the other one several times because he kept saying that he'd look into a group home or transitional place for difficult child then the nnext call would act like we'd never had any conversation before and it would always be the same ole thing- saying the same things as evvery other PO difficult child has ever had has said. I got annoyed- this is stupid- and I'd go off at him until he'd say he'd look into group home. 30 days later, another call, another conversation just like the last. 2) this last PO which is the first we had in this town I moved to 6 mos ago said that here, the PO comes to the parent's house- which I really begrudged while difficult child isn't even living here- but this one I spoke to yesterday said we would meet at his office. Then today, I receive a letter from the Department of Juvenile Justice facility where difficult child is saying he was facing a major institutional charge there (not the same as a street or criminal charge) because he had thrown a liquid on 2 staff members last week. Geez. I looked up the guidelines and for a "major" it doesn't look like they can extend his length of incarceration, however, for the offense, it actually looks like that should have been listed as an assualt on staff which would make it a "serious" and they could extend his stay fro that. At the bottom of the letter, it cc'd "Transfer; Master file". I wonder if that means they are thinking about sending him to a different facility now. (Transferring him). The letter said I needed to contact his "behavior counselor" who is the personin control of him at Department of Juvenile Justice, asap with "new contact info". WTH is going on?? And honestly, if they can't control him while he's in Department of Juvenile Justice, why on earth are they still holding me responsible for his actions? I sure as heck can't control him. *sigh* I'm going to the store.
