    Gosh, I'd take any help I can get!!!!! :faint:

    Absolutely, no privileges. I'd be serving crackers and water for lunch, too. (Yes, I've done that.) And no TV.

    Good luck!

    Oh, and communiting 3-1/2 hrs a day is too much even with-o a difficult child. Good call on finding a local job.

    I think you should accept any help the school offers to get difficult child to school, including the school psychologist coming to your house in the morning. There were times I wished I had such an offer at my disposal.

    I'd take the school psychologist in a heart beat unless the school had been fighting me on difficult child even having issues or something like that. Most days I need all the help I can get.

    I agree I would take the school psychologist coming to the house.

    been there done that- Was quite the site to see the school social worker trying to pull her out from under her bed-of course she was in full blown meltdown as she didn't think I would dare call the school to our home.

    Pretty much did the trick and the school started taking me seriously.

    Good Luck

    How does difficult child feel about the school psychologist? We had the offer to have someone come from the school to take my daughter, but if the wrong person came out with the wrong attitude, it would have only made it worse. They offered the school resource officer and I *knew* that a cop showing up in a police car would send difficult child over the edge. The guidance counselor had no idea how to communicate with difficult child. In our case, the assistant principal was willing to come and difficult child liked and respected her.

    She also never had to come out. I did call her a few times, but that was enough to get my kiddo moving and out the door.
