Things were going really well with JK and then what happened? He was admitted to the pediatric psychiatric ward 2 months ago. He spent a week there and now attends a partial hospitalization program 4 days a week after school. He is back on prescription medication (Risperdal .25mg). Dad's visits have been temporarily suspended because he does not know how to deal with JK and keeps taking him to the psychiatric ER. Aside from this, his teacher reports that JK is a pleasure to work with, very smart, and a wonderful kid. She would like to see him show more emotion in class. Maybe she should come over the day he arrives home from Dad's? He has been making statements to Dad that he wants to be dead and that he is going to kill himself. This is why Dad runs him to the ER. JK knows that saying this will cause me to come and get him from the hospital (and I do) and it ends his visit with Dad. His therapists say he is not suicidal and so does the phychiatrist. He can be such a wonderful kid, I don't know what happens. Just when I thought he was no longer a difficult child. . . . . .
