Anyone know anything about this?? Let me tell you the story of my day and how I came about getting CPS involved: My difficult child who is on a 10 day OOS with an expulsion hearing on Friday is just not motivated to do anything but be deviant. Today he would not get out of bed (says "what? You think you are going to get me out of this bed) and refuses to do any of the homework they have given me (has all F's even though his IQ is 132). He is coming home high on marijuana every night and violating his curfew (there is no grounding at our house since he challenges me every time and just walks out of the house). He was in a really weird mood. He came downstairs and brought his down comforter with him which he put over my head and then full body squeezed me with his arms. He did this 4 times and after asking him to stop i got really mad and told him not to touch me again. He then proceeded to antagonize me by telling me how ugly my hair and clothing and face were. Just being mean and obnoxious. He had a counseling appointment and refused to go and stated he had other things to do. I told him house phone, internet, and tv in his room were all gone. I then went back to the computer. He came down and screamed in my ear (just ruptured my eardrum 4 days ago due to a sinus infection) and I reflexively put my arm up and popped him in the head. He went off, he completely freaked. In my face telling me that he was going to show me what it felt like to be hit by a man, just yelling and screaming. Told him I was calling 911, he ripped the phone out of the wall and told me that I was about to be knocked out and would not be able to call the police. I told him to get out of the house and that I was finally at my breaking point and was going to request help from the juvenile court. He took my car and house keys and refused to give them to me unless I gave him cigarettes. I eventually gave in and gave him some so he would leave. This all happened in front of my 1 and 3 year old! I did not call the cops because they will not do ANYTHING. I have called multiple times and they will not do anything unless he punches me. He left and I went to the juvenile court. NOPE, nothing they can do for me. I called social services and asked that they get involved. So now they are opening a case and getting a family preservation counselor involved. I just want him OUT. His bio father actually told me to let difficult child punch me so that way they will do something. What a moron, so I am supposed to let my son beat me up in front of my little girls. I am so done. I have nothing left to give anymore. And on top of all this, husband decided he did not want to live here anymore and left for 4 days. He came back but has not even spoken to me. He thinks that I am enabling difficult child. I am just trying to keep the peace. he just does not get it that there is only so much I can take. So...after all this .... anyone have a family study and family preservation services through CPS???
