I realize the group home PO wants difficult child to go to accepts mostly kids whose families have turned their backs on them, but PO told me that the parole plan called for this group home with the goal being re-unification with me. Now, the pamplet the lady gave me on this makes it sound moore like they concentrate on getting the kid to independent living, in an apartment. So I wondering if this part is typical of group home expectations: they will be the one to enroll difficult child in the local school district, not me; they want to obtain difficult child's social security card and birth certificate, etc. For those of you who have had kids in group homes, did you have to give the people this stuff? Did you still deal with school district issues and enroll your kid or did they- I live in the same school district the group home is in. difficult child has been in Department of Juvenile Justice and I NEVER had to give them his vital records- his SS#, yes. And the school district contacts me on everything because I am still considered as having parental rights. The way PO talked the other day, I won't have parental rights- the group home staff/caseworker does. I'm starting to think I was BSd on the 're-unification plan' to begin with. If that isn't the plan and I have no parental rights once difficult child is released and goes to group home, then WTH does PO still need to contact me every 30 days and see me every 90 days and WTH will I still be paying CS?
