I've just found out that the "Powers that Be" have met amongst themselves and have determined, in their infinite wisdom, that the solution to our family's issues is.... *Bing! *Bing! *Bing! A Behavior Chart. State Caseworker wants to know what goals to put on the chart. I told her that our Number One Priority is the safety of our family. There was a reeeaaaalllllllyyyyyyy.........llllllloooooooonnnnngggggg.......pause... And then caseworker said "Well, that's not a measurable goal that can go on a chart." She wondered if perhaps we could work on grades instead. I told her that without safety....everything else means nothing. Caseworker got frustrated with me. So now, I'm supposed to email her by the end of the day with some measurable goals that can be charted. Regardless of Caseworker's attitude - safety is #1. I need difficult child to keep her hands off DS. Period. Any ideas how to state that as a measurable goal? Cause frankly, without safety - I don't give a rat's a** if difficult child studies hard enough to be Valedictorian!
