so difficult child II (11 y/o BiPolar (BP) in a contained BD class in our public school) comes home from school happy as can be. He saw his principal and voiced his discontentment with being a 6th grader forced to be in 5th grade lunch and specials, so the prinicipal tells difficult child II that if he can be good for 4 straight weeks, that he promises he will be able to go back into the mainstream 6th grade classes. What the H E Double drum sticks was this man thinking>? I called the school's SW and expressed my concerns. I mean difficult child II is telling all his friends that he will be joining them in a month, and he has the date circled on his calendar!!! SW admitts that the priniciapl wasn't thinking clearly when he said this, and that difficult child II going mainstream anytime soon, is NOT a possibility. I am looking at a serious nuclear explosion 4 weeks from now, when difficult child II realizes this is not going to happen! To boot now difficult child II is asking if his Father will be out of rehab in time for his 12th birthday because he missed his 11th birthday and he has to be there for his 12th, I do not have the heart to tell this kid, his Dad will likely e missing this Birthday as well, it's so sad and so frustrating!
