hi i am never in here and i am sorry and miss it alot. work is pressuring me for my quota, difficult child is off the wall, usual life stuff. so, difficult child is having a really hard time lately. she's adjusted to the move i think yet her anxiety is way high and i had to pull her out of school today because there was no one to talk to her to bring her down, both sw and school pysch were busy. so, there she sat with-the nurse for 45 minutes till igot the phone call. the sw of the school has intervened several times at my request, girls in class are ganging up on difficult child now pretty badly and she doesn't want to go to school worse than before. she's coping fairly well being what's happening to her there she could be alot worse. ive decided upon my cse meeting, and the school is testing her also that i'm getting her placed out of district and into a special needs school for children with-anxiety and depression issues. mainstreaming isn't working i've tried it for 5 years now and it just isnt' happening. i've finally found a therapist for her we start next week. difficult child doesnt' get social que's her sw said and i've seen as well. her paranoia is quite high as well. i'm trying to teach her to react differently i'm playing therapist now since i haven't had one on board and it's been a nightmare, each day for at least an hour at bedtime only she goes on and on. it's hard at teh end of the day to be all she needs i'm shot by than. her anger is being triggered quite a bit she almost hit thegirl in the school the other day instead she managed to verbalize and tell the teacher and she cried alot. anyone else place their child in a specialized school? did you feel it worked better for your child? I was always big on push through, let's figure it out, etc. i'm at a point now whereas my stand on it is changing, why not put her where she'll be the most comfortable and let her create her own life from there? her life as an adult can be whatever she choses it to be.
