Picked difficult child up from school, spoke with the director. She wasn't happy that I was called when all this was taking place, but most of the staff has never seen him like that, and it sounds like he was every bit as manic as he was yesterday at BT, but shorter lived. The teacher who called said he wasn't welcome to stay after instruction, and the director wasn't happy about that, but again, she's not the one that deals with him during that time, so... But she's still willing to work with him. The teacher he slapped did not seem nearly as upset as the teacher that called me and the parent of the child he yanked on. Director will be talking to the other teacher that belittled him yesterday - she beleives it happened. *** I talked with the school director and then we both talked briefly with difficult child. He was sorry, he said his brain just tells him to be wild, and he tries to say no, but he can't. *** Later, at home, impulse control was noticibly less, but otherwise he was ok, so I didn't make a big issue of it. We burnt leaves, then put some wood on the fire for hotdogs. Standing by the fire, he said "Mom, will you kill me?" Of course, I said "no, why would I want to do that!?!?" He said "Because I'm so bad. I'm a bad, bad boy and I don't want to live like this." *** He's chewing on his shirts again as of the past 3 days, so tomorrow, I will dig out the Crocs, the chew necklace, ande plan for him to only attend a half day, as the teacher he doesn't like will be back tomorrow, and I can't fathom what kind of explosion that might bring on. Will try to set up another meeting with the director - in my humble opinion, he MUST be kept away from the other teacher, no matter what it takes. Regardless of how she changes, I think it will take a long, long time for his perception of her to change, and they are gas and fire together. *** I have asked BT to write up the 2 incidents and express how she beleives they are connected. In-home has been in touch, as well, tho she is out of town.
