difficult child just called and told me he'd been set back 2 weeks on release for something all people in the unti did- had candy- and they told him "well this works out better because it gives people more time to figure out where you're going and your parole plan". I could flippin scream! You can bet this will be added to my letter going to fed gov. They simply aren't allowed to do this. All this malarky behavioral contract- famil;y koi to "make sure a family stays consistent in rewards/consequences" and look at them- retaliating and throwing around their weight... So they'll put him back and say it's because PO needs more time to form plan then PO will use the fact that he was set back to justify long term GH with no reunification plan. This agency has gone beyond control. Department of Juvenile Justice assigned his sentence; he did his sentence. They need to stop CYAing each other and grow up and be responsible. PO was supposed to have plan in writing and presented to difficult child and me before Christmas- well- planned out before Christmas and submitted to difficult child and me a week ago. It seems awful coincidental to me that this happened this afternoon- given that ombudsman called me this afternnoon and I told her I'd be filing a formal complaint against PO and it was obvious she'd been talking to PO. It makes me wonder about that sex misconduct charge in Nov, too, that set difficult child back from Dec to Feb. That happened 3 weeks before his scheduled release date, too, when this first koi with PO came up.
