difficult child can have 3 different types of assignments on his missing assignment reports. Missing assignments (have not turned in anything) Incomplete(turned in but not finished) and wips(work in progress--is done but can be improved). difficult child has 2 wips, 1 incomplete, and 1 missing. He was supposed to bring it home yesterday, but forgot. Originally said he had no missing assignments so he did not need to bring it home. I told him I needed to see it no matter what, and that if he did not bring it home today I would go to school with him tommorrow and get it then. To his credit he did bring it home today. I told him he has untill next week to get the missing and incomplete assignments done and then I will go and be sure he has the stuff and he can go to the homework club they have after school so he has a good work place and help available. According to difficult child he does not have to redo the wips, he can if he wants and he does not want to. I do not agree with that decision, but am not sure if I should badger him into redoing--I really don't know if that would be worth it. It would be a major fight. I am seeing him be a little more violent (not at me, but at objects) and easier to anger. I am leary of going to the school because of this also, especially after he punched the car window last week. I am going to talk to psychiatrist and therapist about this issue. The anger thing is only directed at me, not his father or sister or aunt or anyone at the school as far as I know. I think some of it is that he is fighting for more independence and I am trying to give it to him, but it scares me at the same time. Dad has been doing pretty poorly lately, and I wonder if that has something to do with difficult child's behavior. He saw therapist today and she said he is doing great. Sometimes I want to tell her of course he is doing great, he is the only kid in the room and he has your undivided attention! I do think that therapist has been beneficial, but sometimes she just does not get it.
