NO ONE!!!! difficult child I has been being a nasty $##$# ghetto bratt. I had to call the police this morning just to get him to school. He was being defiant to the core and violent to boot. I call the Child services worker and he's on vacation, but, his supervisor tells me to "just call the police is he gets out of hand and to press charges". The principal says "well you can't do this everyday just to get him to school". Well hello, so long as the school is threatening to take me to court for his tardies and absences then what the hay can I do? Then Value options (next step up from DYFS) tells me to call mobile response, who in-turn always (from past experience with difficult child II) tells me to call the police. The in home therapist (who said difficult child I's problems were behavior and attitude based) they had provided never even bothered to show up for his last 2 visits. And now they do not want to renew the contract for a new in home for difficult child I or give me CMO services (next step up - difficult child II has them) The guidance counselor just offers me information on an adult night school everytime I call him. The kid has an IEP, doesn't that mean anything. On a bright note, the police are the only ones who bother to come or do anything!!!! I have a knot in my neck the size of Texas, sigh................... If I am having this many problems with difficult child I I shudder to think of difficult child II at 16.
