Tuesday night my husband gave difficult child $120 to give to his driver to school because husband had to go to a very early business meeting and couldn't give it to him himself. difficult child brought back a receipt that evening for $100 Wednesday evening. Yesterday the school, a therapeutic military school that receives special funding from the state for ESE student with behavioral problems, called husband, "I thought you were going to send $120, not $100." husband explained difficult child took the extra $20, and also that same day threw away some clothes, shoes, and again put his GPS in the dishwasher. The school listened and said they'd talk to the head of the school and have her call husband back. She called back about 15 minutes later, "Oh sorry, we found the money. You did send $120." My husband had a funny feeling they were lying, but... Then last night we found the extra $20 in his bed. difficult child convinces EVERYONE that we are so horrible, that we beat and punish and starve and whatever. He has an absolute genius for bringing out the co-dependent in people. Do these people really think they are helping him?
