At what point do professionals think I am educated enough? We are working on services both public and private. 2 have social skills classes and both have spoken that these are to be attended with difficult child!?! He is 24yrs old. I suggested that I am adequately educated and would probably not be in attendance. When is it enough for parents to not have to take away from the rest of their lives and kids lives to sit and learn the same things we have learned before? It sure doesn't reflect independent adult development if mom has to be in the room. Honestly. I hate to sound like an uninvolved or uncaring mom but at a certain age I should be the memory and cue giver to difficult child but not his partner. Sorry to vent but I wonder if any other parent of older difficult child's have had the same experience or is it for AS young adults. I'm pretty sure the court system wouldn't expect it.
