Well, it was too good to be true that difficult child hadn't been in trouble yet this year in school, but he managed to break the winning streak. Yesterday he had D-Hall from 4:00 to 6:00 PM for TALKING in class and being disrespectful to the teacher. Seems a little severe if you ask me, but he did his time. As I predicted, difficult child had a blast in the D-Hall. Now what kind of deterrent is that going to be? PLUS it was two days AFTER the offense. Arg.....the school systems will NEVER get it, I tell ya!
