this is the only place that can understand this request. difficult child I (17) is a thief, thugh and bratt. He is a difficult child. He has made a mistake and he is not really sorry. But the court is making him go back to school 2morrow. And there he'll face a few peers who feel he snitched on them and the kid he stole from. Rumors are flying already about fights and worse. I am worried, he is worried. I do not want to enable him in any way and he has to go, per court. But I am praying God will intervene and protect him and all parties involved, as well as humble difficult child I's heart. I trembel at the thought of losing him to this "idiotic" gang like mentality so many youth have today the whole "distorted respect" thing.
