difficult child came home around 5:30 and helped me cook dinner, then ate. He atlked to me about his plans to discuss things with his PO- not a story I would believe in entirety but maybe showing some glimmer of hope that there was still a side of him that wanted something good. Apparently that was another BS story. He said he was going to the bathroom about 9:40 then going to his bedroom. About 10 mins later I got up to check and he was nowhere to be found in this house. Oh- I should mention that he has a condom and he says his best friend gave it to him- that he hasn't told this guy he's on parole but has told him he can't break the law anymore- and he says he met a girl. Who knows what the truth really is. I have locked the doors. I'd seriously like to know what the PO's mentor who's supposed to be here "to let difficult child talk to him in trust about things he can't talk to his parent about" is supposed to do to solve this problem- about the same as the probation officer's in home therapist who wasn't scheduled to appear for a week after difficult child pulled a knife on me? And all the while- difficult child blaming me for being too strict as the cause of his problems and GAL blaming my issues as the cause of it all. All I can say is that I have locked the doors. Who knows what the night will bring- if I'll be calling 911 within 10 mins or just telling PO whenever he decides to call. And I'm supposed to block all this out and go on as normal and work to pay for this house? Right. I hope that newborn son that GAL has teaches her a heck of a lot about reality.
