    So difficult child II started full day camp today, sigh...... I knew I had a knot in my stomach this morning when I dropped him off for a reason. The counselor called me while I was in a meeting and left me a message. difficult child II was accidentally hit in the head by some kid and he went after him, they broke it up, and difficult child II burst into tears, after cursing out the counselors.

    I'm sorry for your horrible, no good, really bad, no good day. I'm sure it is hard for a new kid to integrate with kids that have been at camp all summer-maybe especially so when they are a difficult child?

    I'm sorry that things with difficult child 1 were so bad and that things turned physical.

    Then all the other stuff on top of both difficult children-I really hope tomorrow is much better. Tonight I'm sending gentle hugs your way.

    so today I took him to camp against my better judgement, when i went to pick him up, I saw a Father walking out with his son and he was yelling at him, immediatly I am thinking what ever it was that happened that my kid was involved! Talk about PTS! Well I walked in and the director came out, as I was holding my breathe, he said, "I was with him all day" "he was fine"

    exhale, 2 days down, one a disaster, one good, and 3 more to go.......

    Cr@p girl........I am not sure how you are doing this. I am worked up just reading your post. I can so completely identify with every aspect of what you are going through...........:angry-very:

    A) Prayers that difficult children makes it through camp this week
    B) difficult child 1 will be 18 will get better, and soon
    C) Seriously you gotta MOVE!!! What support can we give you to help with extracting you out of this crummy home environment? You staying has to be about more than money, because many people make it without parents, right? That is what social services are intended for. So what keeps you tied to the verbally abusive household?
    D) Burn the letter from it go up in flames as you walk away from him emotionally.

    So many hugs.
    We love you.

    I wouldn't burn the letter from ex. I'd file it. You might need it at some future stage, to show that
    1) he's worse than a ratbag; and
    2) he's not playing his part in his own rehab.

    So - BURN A COPY!
