My difficult child has been suspended from school several times this year. Mostly for being insubordinate, once for PDA, and then again for making out with-g-friend under stairwell. First day back to school after being suspended and holiday and he had a meltdown yelling and being a total mess, why you ask because poor child was asked to get a book out for class. Anyhow he has been referred to Alternative School...........Part of me says go in and fight for my kid, but in reality I keep fighting for him and trying to save him from alternative and he keeps this behavior up. So have I been helping him or rescuing him? I think I know the answer. But I want to know if I keep fighting for him he will continue to think has no consequences. Suspended from school he gets to stay home..........the only thing he is missing is his social life since he isnt doing the work. Any suggestions as to where I go from here ?
