Well my 18 year old son is still in jail, waiting to be sentenced for possession of marijuana, possession of a handgun, obstruction of justice, & probation violation. This morning I received a call from the dean at my daughter's school, informing me my daughter skipped school last Thursday & was refusing to go back to the teacher's class because she ( the science teacher) "disrespected her" by telling another teacher she had skipped class. I'm just over disrespectful kids & wondering why mine are so bad. The dean told me to come & meet with- the Asst principal this morning to work out a solution so my daughter could go back to class. She still refused to go, & he told me it would be ok to take her home until he could schedule a meeting to talk things over between her & the science teacher. I asked if she could be sent to In-school suspension today instead of being rewarded by letting her go home early. He agreed & that's where she is now. Her dad & I share custody, & he told me he was prosecuting me bc she snuck out this past Friday night when I fell asleep at 10pm after working 14 hours in ICU. Never mind as soon as I woke up & discovered she was gone(@12am) & texted her & told her I was calling the police if she didn't come home. (Which she immediately did.) She tried to go to a party Saturday where I know there was weed & alcohol, so I had to change the access code on my security system so she couldn't again sneak out of the house. I'm staying strong with- this one, because she has to learn she has to follow rules or face the consequences. I really fail to understand why my ex can't just put differences aside & help co-parent this child. We are court ordered to go to a family counselor, & all he tries to do is make me look bad in front of him! He blames everything my daughter does on me. I'm praying every night that things improve, & reading a book on setting boundaries. I swear I was a loving but strict parent with these kids, but neither one of them thinks rules apply to them now. I have 2 adult children from another marriage, & they never went through anything like this!
