difficult child I (17) was remanded to detention for 60 days, based on his suspended sentence from his last violation of probation. This was his 3rd strike! He seemed to think he was walking in and out of court today, but I knew better, he just wouldn't listen to me or his counselors. I am praying he'll be safe and healthy (swine flu scare). I was able to help two other distraught moms in the court waiting area today, I am always giving out the web address for this site! So many parents have no idea about how to go about getting resources for their kids. One Mom's son is 12 with aspergers. The school pressed assault charges against her son, because he shoved the nurse (who was physically blocking him) to get to his Mom, the nurse felt "naseaus" from the whole traumatic incident. This is what happens when you have children with special needs are forced to remain in district to receive their "fair and appropriate" education. Ridiculous!
