Ok, I have been holding this in now for a few weeks and I am ready to explode. After the initial two weeks of school, I soon learned difficult child wasn't doing work. (probably why he said he loved school) After that first initial meeting there was a very loud argument that followed. To which difficult child texted easy child and some very unkind words were sent my way. Ofcourse, husband did nothing. Sided with difficult child. (feel for his "feel sorry for me" act) Then difficult child was really excited, a girl from the home school accepted his invitation to homecoming. Only to call and cancel ten days later. (she said she had to go out of town). He was really let down. Now he doesn't want to go to this school, all his friends are at the other school. Then comes another meeting a week ago Tuesday. Two hours later I leave. Having his current grades. (4 blocks, c, d, d-, b) Missing work in all. I tried to controll myself but totally lost it. husband tried talking to him as he sits at the computer. difficult child starts playing a game as husband is talking. I make him logout. Then he logs onto AIM, I make him log out. Then he starts clipping hi snails..I take it away. I totally lost it. Prior to school the next day, difficult child says I ruin his life and I should leave. He leaves. I had to bring him some pants (his had a hole in it, not allowed) and I also brought a blank paper I found. He changed. I handed him his paper and he crumpled it up and threw it down. He hates the school, he hates me. I ask for his phone due to his disrespect and he says no and heads down the hall. From the other end of the hall he is screaming how he hates me and I ruin his life and get out. I left school crying. Two days after that meeting husband went to conference, I had to work. All good reports, no missing work, all told husband he is doing better. Friday, the next day I get new progress reports...3 B's and 1 C. No D's. Things get better over the weekend. He goes to school fine Monday. An hour later I get a call from the laison officer. difficult child suspended. Didn't know why, the dean would call later with that information. difficult child has mentioned on and off that kids always tease him about being short. This day, I am yelling at him, crying all the way home. Later he starts telling me what happened. Two boys pick on him every day. Push him into the lockers, push his head to the wall, call him names and many nasty things about not being in puberty and being short. This day, after the very nasty comment (I cannot repeat it here) difficult child lost it. Not fighting, but very angry. That anger got him sent home. He asked me if I would pick him up because these boys ride the bus. He didn't tell. When the dean called I told, I gave the two names. She didn't know. Said that would make her angry too. Bullying is not allowed and it will be taken care of. difficult child asked on Monday if he can see psychiatrist. Hasn't seen him since last May. difficult child asked to go back on Lamictal. he said he doesn't like feeling so angry and hopes this can help. I call psychiatrist. Start lamictal. psychiatrist said Lamictal can help with headaches too. He addressed my concern of him being short. he said to talk to his pediatrician about growth hormones.!!! I am just not ready to throw him into something he isn't ready for. He is 13. Will be 14 two months from today. All his friends have grown a foot and sound like men. He is very upset that he isn't. Ok. sorry. If anyone made it through, thanks. next day he returned to school. He said he didn't see the boys.
