My 16 year old difficult child is in a shelter waiting for his evaluation this coming week. He is able to call me every evening which is ok. But every night he's asking me the same questions over and over... "did you talk to anyone?, what are they going to ask me?, what are you going to say?, Am I going to be placed?, etc, etc." This driving me nuts. Don't get me wrong I love my son with all of my heart no matter what he has done which has been alot, but I can hardly wait to get off the phone with him some nights. When he was home I had the answers to keep him out of placement (go to school, come home at night, be respectful, and so on) He didn't want to hear any of it. Now when I tell him if he would of listened to my answers before we wouldn't be where we are now. he of course gets mad and thats only because he knows I'm right. I'm just venting here. Does any one have a child who once they are placed and I truely believe he will be going to residential they feel you as a parent should "SAVE" them from what "THEY" have done???
