difficult child had a fairly good week last week. No missing assignments, Just tardies, A's an all tests. so we allowed him to do things on Friday night and Sunday afternoon. School starts at 8:30. 8:32 Special Education teacher is on the phone and said, Please tell Alex he needs to come to school with supplies, and bring supplies to class. She put him on the phone, and he just went off on me yelling that he didn't do it before and he isn't doing it now. I reminded him that he is in 7th grade and the rules have not changed. I told him he had pencils on the top of his locker (I cleaned it out two weeks ago). He started screaming at me "BOO HOO, I don't bring paper or pencils to class. the world is going to end. I don't feel like taking anything to class and I am not doing anything today. You guys are retarted!" I hung up, because here I am at work, in tears as he is yelling at me. I called husband, left him a message and told him to call school on his break. School psychiatric. testing begins today. If I were to see him now, I would probably smack him. I think we should of spanked when he was younger. Because now...I think I will begin spanking, only I am so angry, so hurt, so lost, that I just don't care.
