WEll, here I am again. difficult child refused to go to school again for the umpteenth time. She's in 6th grade now. This started in 4th grade, she didn't finish out the year. Didn't go to school in 5th grade and hasn't been back to school since the end of March. She said she wants to be homeschooled--yea right, she wants to have me as a target all day long. We have gone the whole route, with the counselors, teachers, principal, even a truancy letter from the court, etc. to get her to go. Nothing has worked. There is no t.v., no computer, no video or even library books and she just digs her heels in and basically WINS. I am so sick of this I would like to go somewhere and disappear. She is only 12 and we have at least 6 years to put up with this. I know there isn't anything to say and nothing to do. I've done it all. She hasn't been officially diagnosed with Aspergers but she has almost all of the symptoms except the "odd gaze" I am so grateful there is a "soft place to land" because the rest of this is HARD. Thanks!!!
