He says he's going to stop by the school this morning on his way to visit Department of Juvenile Justice facilities and talk to difficult child- he says he's going to give him a big wake-up call and leave him on house arrest a while longer and give him a drug test when we come in next week. I ask about what was available for PO's to do- he says they don't have access to ankle bracelets/monitoring on parole. I ask if they could throw the kid's rear in detention for a weekend and he said in order to he would have to oficially violate difficult child and take him before a judge who might or might not go that route. With difficult child just getting released, there is just as much chance that a judge would recommit him to Department of Juvenile Justice. He said this is the kind of stuff he's going to tell difficult child this morning. As far as the mentor- the director/super that I first spoke with is no longer there. He said he had called them and told them they need to find someone and start today or tomorrow. Also, he had fore-warned them that difficult child will try to blame me and manipulate and if he hears of any stories like that, he will call and discuss them with me prior to issuing any orders. Good- I hope I have finally found someone who gets the problem. He asked if I thought difficult child was doing drugs- no but the test is a good idea just to be sure. difficult child said last night that he has not told his best friend he's on parole- so I guess difficult child doesn't want it to look like he's on house arrrest. And, the boy gave difficult child a condom- my guess is that difficult child is really just trying to find a girl to have his first experience with. I told PO that difficult child never bucked the probation officer's rules like this- it had always been just mine but this is outrageous to be bucking parole like this when just getting released. PO said yes- it is pretty nutty. We both agreed that it would add up if difficult child thinks this is leading him to sex with someone. Nevertheless, PO is giving him a warning this morning that one more thing and difficult child will get oofficially violated and go to the judge. I'm sure difficult child will be a real peach toward me this evening- I just hope he doesn't become violent or do something rash like run away.
