difficult child was discharged from psychiatric hospital on Mon. He had been depressed and was cutting his arm and had been sneaking off to hang out with an undesriarable boy about his age. Yesterady, he had the disrespectful attitude and was trying to be intimadating and manipulative. Today, he's been great, but I did see on my credit card bill that he had charged things to my card that I don't allow him to do- I don't allow him to make internet purchases, much less charge them to my card. I told him he needs to sign over Christmas gift checks to reimburse me (the checks total about $50; the charges on my card are about $100). Anyway, he said he would not do it. Other than that he has been very aggreeable, compliant and helpful, I have to admit. He helped with dinner, he did a couple of chores I ask him to (ask only once) and he stayed right in front of the house to shoot a few basketball hoops with the neighbor boy. Then, he has been in his room- with no tv or stereo on. I went up there about 1/2 hour ago to check on him, he said he was just thinking. I can see through the crack at the door- he was just sitting there. He came downstairs for a few mins and ate 1 1/2 brownies that he'd made and joked a bit about the dogs stockings. Then, he went back to his room. These are the times where it doesn't seem like mania- actually- I'm sure it isn't. But, I don't know what to do. I'm not sitting here thinking that he's up there remorseful- he isn't. He's just "there". Does anyone else's teen boy do things like this? How worried should I be?
