Hi, I am a single parent warrior that just now found this god-sent message board. difficult child 1 has high-functioning autism - I finally found out that medications have no effect for that condition - and is still at home and making improvement (slight, but definately moving in the right direction). difficult child 2 has BiPolar (BP), but has made tremendous progress and is no longer on medications, married with-2 kids and doing great since the months of raging, suicide threats and attempt several years ago. difficult child 3 is a mid teen and has been hard to get diagnosed, especially with the 3-ring circus that I have tried to manage by myself for the last 20+ years. I was able to force a diagnosis of ADHD a couple of years ago just so I could get an IEP for him. but it has been a downhill plunge since then. DAD tried to whip him into shape for a measly 18 months before giving up and sending him back worse. now he has 2 counts of drug sales at the high school (was selling his medications to make friends), is in state custody, and I have to deal with a rookie CW who only is interested in getting me to admit that I am the one with the problem and need individual counseling and parenting classes, even though I have been through countless parenting classes, have applied all the love/logic, etc. techniques for years on all my kids and was even STATE-approved for being a Home Support care provider and mainly dealt with special needs kids for 2 years just recently. difficult child 3 now has a double diagnosis of CD and ODD, but the CW still insists that I go and sit through at least 1 parenting class per month, and go to therapy. after 2 weeks of trying to reconnoiter the communications difficulties several different ways, I finally blew my stack and sent a letter out to everybody involved just so that everyone would be aware of the commnication stalemate between me and CW (judge, 3 CW and their supervisors, PO, the GAL, and both attorneys) that the requirements presented to me by CW could not be met with the few options for solutions that CW offered, so I would give up rights at the next court date... so now CW thinks I am the one having the meltdown. I don;t know where to go from here... help!
