Two weeks no fighting. i was really trying. I did lay down the rules two weeks ago, and sternly reminded him. I HAVE many times very strongly stated, "You will NOT speak to me that way". sometimes repeated that over and over. Like that really helps. I don't even remember if I posted this or not, I printed it out and showed husband what I had to deal with last semester. There is a new online parent connect for school which I logged onto for the first time Sunday night. Had everything imaginable on it. Behavior/diciplinary action. GPA, Transcript - including middle school. Grades, assignments, current grades. AND ATTENDANCE. Per PERIOD (4 periods per day) Excused Absenses - 53 (periods) Field trip - 6 OSS - 6 ISS - 6 Excused Tardy - 4 Tardy - 19 Mid-term progress report second quarter = F, D-, F, F Final semester grade = C, C, C+, C+ He shouldn't have to cram an entire quarter into the last two weeks and pray he passes. And husband thinks I am lying when I tell him School keeps contacting me. He never talks to teachers or goes to school to meet with them when they REQUEST it. Then husband yells at me for GOING to school. Please send me strength, please. Just when I thought it was getting better - it got worse than before. Ok. I edited a lot out. Too wordy, too much information. Just bad physical/verbal fight with difficult child.
