Child welfare Services is supposed to provide him with outpatient treatment and design an outline of tasks he has to complete prior to them ok'ing visits with difficult child II and difficult child I (although he's old enough to choose not to see d/h)
It is weird, but I do read a post with a tone to it. Sometimes they seem anxious, sometimes sad - I read faster or slower depending.
This post has you sounding so much more relaxed to me. Much calmer and relaxed. Not excited or happy - just relaxed. Like you have processed it all and are accepting that you have no power over what he chooses to do.
I hope I am right in my assessment - and I think I am because 2 other people commented on it already, too.
