So, I found a empty pkg of boys' underwear on the kitchen table today. difficult child clearly found it in his room and is wearing it. Yaaay! Bad news ... he got Bs, Cs, and a D on his mid-term report card. He ended last yr with-all As and Bs. He's been tutored at Sylvan all summer, just so this wouldn't happen. I'm going to email the teacher and ask if we should be alarmed or if she's trying to get him to work harder. Meanwhile, no computer or video games ... husband can break that to difficult child. I'm sick of being the bad guy. Thank you all so much for your support. I really appreciate it.
