but at least this time, he stayed in the bldg and went to the rest of his classes. (Last time, he walked out.) The phone was returned at the end of the day. Why did it take them 4 yrs to do this? (I have no idea whose phone it is. He said it is not H's. And all he does is play games on it.) Okay, this isn't nice, but I'm going to say it anyway. You know the girl in Columbia, SC, who was being disrespectful and the school couldn't handle her, so they called the police? And the deputy flipped her over her desk? Why couldn't that have been my son???? He needs that kind of discipline. I want that deputy to come and live at my house! Our kids know the law and they recite it back to us from the moment they hit puberty. "I'm calling social services!!!" (Because I'm making you go to bed?) The teacher emailed me today, and also attached Difficult Child's classwork, homework and testing grades. He's got an F in class. Makes me sick, because he got 100 on two tests. He CAN do the work, and he loves govnt. He'd just rather play games on his phone, and get high after school. I made him do a worksheet tonight. I don't think he finished but at least he worked on it. It's about a month old. (eye roll) Okay. Vent over.
