difficult child I (17 y/o son) is now in a self contained BD class at his highschool. It is nothing like my younger son's BD class in the middle school (and I thought his was bad!) difficult child I basically sits in a room and is able to listen to his music, and text on his phone. Does a handful of math problems and reads a paragraph, it's very frustrating, however, even though it's wrong to "push him through" he has zero self motivation and is 110% defiant about everything, so if this is what it takes to get him a diploma then so be it, sigh...... knock on wood, he has been staying out of trouble and not breaking probation. He also was/is grateful he got an Xbox 360, he knows he did not deserve it!
