My difficult child is 17 and has been a handful since....well forever. I finally have started to let go since in a month or so he will be 18. We have had every service imaginable. Wrap around, emotional support, TSS, family based and now he is on probation. I can say he is a little better but he is still not where he needs to be. This inspired me to go into the social service field. I believe since we have had all the services.......I know what it's like to be on the parent side of things. So I start next week as a TSS......so if anyone can give me what expectations, helpful hints and guidance as to what you would have liked in a TSS please let me know! I know from experience how frustrating it is when you can't get your difficult child's to listen, obey and how ineffective some of our services were....I really want to be the exception. So any suggestions or thoughts are appreciated. PS our brief treatment therapist has worked wonders. Although difficult child still has outbursts of rage, they have been considerably lowered in numbers.
