Detach - Detach - Detach How do you do that??? I am literally driving myself crazy. The minute difficult child is not home when he suppose to be or I have a hard time finding him I totally freak. Today for example - he said he was going to walk up and down a street right next to our house with a couple of girls. I said O.K. but if I walk out into the street I better be able to see you. Well of course I did walk into the street and of course I didn't see him. I also told him to be within hollering distance. (yea I am from the south!) I hollered twice still no response. I got in truck and started around the corner about the time he was walking up. He said they walked up into one of the girls yards. I told him I didn't care where he was - he wasn't where I told him to be. He got a little attitude then apologized. If he wasn't on probation for doing something stupid I wouldn't be freaking out. I hate that it ever happened. I know, better for him to get in trouble now then when he is an adult. I just don't think I can handle seeing him handcuffed again. Guess I am just looking for some support here. I gotta get a grip before this truly does land me in a psychiatric ward somewhere!
