This will probably be an actual arrest, at school. Not sure. I'm on hold. Difficult Child took our credit card yesterday and charged $11.42 at a local convenience store. Not worth making a report? Getting him arrested for some iced tea and chips? Well, according to our lawyer, we can go through the motions and then drop the charges, but this way, we get him into treatment. Or into Job Corps. Not to mention, get his attention and teach him that continuing to use our credit cards is unethical, illegal, and just plain wrong. He just doesn't "get it." My heart is racing. But I have to do this. Wish me luck. Help me stay calm and to keep Difficult Child properly medicated where ever he ends up. This is not the kind of parenting I signed up for.
