husband called 911 Fri, police took custody of difficult child and he's been at psychiatric hospital. difficult child has refused to go to school all this school year, most of summer school, & much of last year. It's a special needs school and he gets weekly counseling at school from county mental health services also. Long story short, difficult child lives with husband ( we are separated), difficult child was assaultive so husband called poice. difficult child is abusive on daily basis, damages house, and breaks things frequently. I told husband that I would NOT take him home when they say it's time. I suppose he would be placed in some foster or residential care? husband has had enough of the abuse, and he said.... It depends on his attitude on what he learns at this hospital stay, medication changeor increase.... He refuses medications almost every other day so I don't know how much good an increase would do?.
