Why is it so hard for difficult child to just go to school and do his work? why why why? He has gotten to the point where he flat out refuses to do his work. Yesterday he laughed in his teachers face when she told him to do it. The day before, he was disrupting the class and she told him to move his desk. So being the smart a** he is, he lifted his heavy desk above his head, and flung it across the room. ACK! We have tried bribing him to do good (promised him a dirt bike at the end of the year), we try a behavior chart at home (where he loses privliages)..he could care less, spanking only enrages him worse, husband refuses for him to be put back on medications, I don't know what else to do. I am convinced that he is going to fail 3rd grade, and/ or get suspended before the end of the school year. Last night I had a full blown panic attack at the dinner table, couldn't breathe, my face turned hot and red, and then just a sudden onset of hysterical crying when I got back to my bedroom. This is a huge strain on my marriage, my family...we are about to move in a month & 1/2 so i don't want to start him seeing someone new (psychiatrist), not that he would adjust to new medications anyway given there are less than 3 weeks of school left. God please help me. That is all I know to do or say anymore.
