seems to get through to easy child. Probably I should change her status to difficult child but guess I'm trying to hold on to a thread of hope that she'll turn things around. Last night after a very long day (left the house at 7:00 in the morning and got home at 8:30 last night) I decided to check easy child and difficult child's grades on line. difficult child did great. All his grades are modified because of his needs but he had mostly Bs with an A in math and a D in science (science they don't modify the curriculum). easy child, on the other hand, had 3 Fs, an Incomplete, a D and a C (or something close to that-the 3 Fs and Incomplete are for sure correct). She just doesn't seem to care. husband and I called her down stairs to talk. She listened with no real eye contact (kind of like, o.k. say what you have to say and let me go upstairs). We have told her things are really up to her at this point. We told her she turns 18 in July 11 and is supposed to graduate next year. She seems to think that will be no problem and doesn't seem to think she'll need summer school. We told her there is no way she could do it during the school year next year which she seems to think is possible. husband asked how she could handle that when she can't handle even a full schedule now. She says she isn't going to summer school. I'm really worried at this point that she isn't going to graduate next year on time. husband told her we are not getting her senior pictures, class ring, nothing until we know she is graduating. Even though she doesn't think so; I'm sure she will be in summer school so there goes her $1000.00 internship for the summer. There goes any remaining chance at her scholarship program (if it wasn't gone already). She has such dreams for herself (and I call them dreams not goals because she isn't willing to do anything to obtain them). The frustration is in knowing the type of potential she has (not just our point of view-have heard from many others). I told her last night that I think she doesn't believe in herself and her potential even though she says otherwise. I am about to give up because I don't know what to do anymore-I've been fairly detached and then this happens and bam Anyone with any suggestions (a couple of weeks ago her therapist brought up the idea of our alternative high school-she says no way). Sorry I haven't responded to a lot of posts lately-it's been some really long days and I am reading but literally haven't been able to respond. I am, however, keeping everyone in my prayers.
