Things continue to be about the same with SS. He acts slightly better at our home every other weekend than he does at his bio mom's, and there is a social worker coming to her home and working with SS a few times a week. It really hasn't made any difference. He has missed 8 days of school recently because he refuses to get up and get ready and go to school, and bio mom claims that there is no truant officer in her county so they won't do anything about it but that if they find out that he is not going to school she can get in trouble. He is still having violent outbursts when he doesn't get his way. Last week someone hacked one of his video game accounts and took all the weapons he had earned and it was all worth 200 dollars, so he went to bio mom and demanded she get out her credit card and replace all the items immediately. She of course refused and he went ballistic, throwing things, punching the walls, breaking a lamp. And she did not call the cops on him nor did she tell us about it. We found out through a third party. Seems there are a lot of things she is keeping from us as far as his behavior goes. I am still scared senseless when he is here with husband and I, and I am beginning to think husband has his head a little bit in the clouds too as far as SS's mental illness goes. He thinks because SS isn't as violent with us (yet) as he is with his mom, that it means that he can control his behavior and from all I have read about bipolar and ODD that just isn't the case. He is very unpredictable, he just relates a little better to husband and I than he does his bio mom. But that by no means implies that he is not dangerous. As have said before, it is going to take SS doing something bad for his bio mom and husband to be willing to do what needs to be done. She still has not filed the unruly child charges against SS even though the psychiatrist told her to file them ASAP at SS's last appointment. She calls us several times a week because he is having a meltdown or breaking still and shoving her, thinking that just by husband talking to him he will stop having the meltdown. You can't even talk to him during a rage...he is in another world and unware of his surroundings. I am getting to the point where I think children's services should be involved, because this child needs help NOW before something bad happens. Please keep us in your prayers. Thanks.
