Haven't posted in a while -- things were going relatively well. Not now. difficult child was at a school outdoor camp -- first time away he ever spent a night away from us. Supposed to be a three day trip. Can you say "trepidation"? He made it two days but was sent home today. I was assured very few children have ever been sent home from this program. Tried to get husband to be a chaperone -- school (and his doctor) thought it would be better if difficult child went alone. And now husband is driving to the camp to pick him up for threatening to kill someone who made him angry. As far as I can tell, he didn't actually even touch anyone, just threatened. I don't know how he is going to handle going back to school after this. I am so sad. difficult child will feel so hurt and ashamed. I'm not looking for anyone to say that someone else (school folks, camp folks, anyone) should have done this or should have done that. I wish I could help him more. I've tried to give him every tool I have painfully learned over the years (I'm just like him) but he doesn't understand yet. He was so happy and excited about going to camp. And now.... my heart is just breaking for him. How is he going to face all of the people at school now? I feel so helpless and sad.
