difficult child called from school early this AM to ask if she could come home. Of sourse the response from me is 'huh?, why?'. To which she replied, "I am feeling stressed out and I can not stay here today. I feel like someone is pounding on my chest." Apparently, staying at dad's stresses difficult child out. Well, I know for a fact living here stresses her out as well. She can not wait to 'go to college' so she is out of here. Let me just lead right into problem #2. Grades. Report card came home today (perhaps part of that stress above?) and her GPA is a 55%. Yup, failing. Apparently, difficult children insistence on doing it her way and not being punished, not having me or dex get involved at all (her way this time) - DID NOT WORK! UGH! She thinks she is getting into college with that? If she was really looking for a way to get away from her parents, don't you think she would be working harder at the grades to ensure she could 'get outta here'? Problem is: I just do not know what to do from here. We have tried everything. Every punishment possible, every talk possible, counseling, medications (still on Adderall - it helps and she admits it) at school counseling, IEP, hounding her about homework, not hounding her about homework - and on and on. We have tried it all. I just do not know of anything else to try. This will be the 3rd summer she spends at summer school. We have begged for them to fail her in the past and they just will not do it. Please help me think of something else to try. Thanks!
