My difficult child is upstairs right now refusing to write over a paper that he was given as puniishment during class today for being careless. If he writes the paper, it's the 1st offense in that class (the 3rd for the year would be getting sent to the principal for a write-up). If he doesn't write it, he gets teacher detention and sent to the office for a write-up. Now, here he has plenty enough problems with school looking for retaliation and trying to prove he shouldn't be in a mainstream school to begin with and I'm fighting school district- thinking of reporting them to the state. All he says is "I don't have a pencil" so he locked himself in his room. He has pencils- am I supposed to take it to him? Where is his head? I feel the pressure, so I come down on him harder after his teacher already has. I understand. But he could have had it written by now and D***- Suggestions?
