difficult child wound up in county jail in PA for taking a cab an hour and a half away from the group home knowing full well he had no money to pay for it. He called me while he was in the cab and asked me to pay the $165 but I refused and said he had to figure it out. He was arrested bc of it and is now in jail with a bail of $10,000. He has a 10% option so it would be $1000 to get him out but I've decided not to bail him out. He has been so out of control for so long and hasn't ever had any real consequences for his actions. This is certainly the biggest consequence he's ever had to face. It's his first time ever in jail and I'm hoping it will be a wake up call to him. Here's the problem - I feel so guilty! I KNOW that I didn't do this and its not my fault but he's still my son and this is just so sad to me. Because he's in jail he's going to lose his bed at the group home and will need to figure out what he's going to do after he gets out. It's just such a shame but I honestly believe if something drastic like this didn't happen then he would have continued on in full force until something worse eventually happened. So even though I know I did the right thing by standing my ground I still can't help but feel like this whole thing is so wrong!
