difficult child has been getting increasingly argumentative during last two weeks and today his coaches decided he is being too much of a disruption right now. Regular season is coming to the end very soon and they can't afford any disruptions so the behaviour they could had dealt with for example during fall (and did) is too much right now. So difficult child is sent home to regroup for few days and told to be back to train with their injured squad/alone with one of the trainers at Monday morning. If he is able to get his behaviour together they will consider taking him off the injured list after few days and in time for the first playoff game. He has still been playing well so they could use him. But they also got people out from injured list so they don't absolutely need difficult child right now. So now he is with 'upper body injury' (hey, they are not even lying, I guess things between your ears are in the upper part of your body...) and I will pick him up from train station after work. I'm not thrilled at all. difficult child is being sent home to rest and have a breather, but I'm not at all sure we can offer him that. husband is very frustrated with difficult child and tends to think his acting up is sheer wilfulness. He is also having really hard time copying with whole situation. easy child is little ambivalent how to relate to things we have told him and things he keeps hearing from others. And difficult child himself is seethingly angry. Feels he is being treated unfairly and that there are double standards going on, that he was used and that his positional coach betrayed him. He kind of has even some reason to feel that way. Sending him home is, according to his coach, a pre-emptive strike because his behaviour is getting worse and they would rather deal with it now than during the most important games of the season. And others really are getting away with same type of behaviours even now. I almost dread having him home in this situation, but I can't really go out and tell him he can't come home either, now can I. I did tell husband that I would think it a great idea if he would find something to do outside of home for this evening for himself and I did send the text to easy child and suggested that he may want to do an essay he needs to do in library tonight. If difficult child is being at the same mood he is now still after train trip I would rather deal with it on my own and not to play referee between him and husband and easy child on top of that.
