difficult child is currently in the midst of his third attempt at graduating high school. He only has 6 classes to pass this semester and then he is DONE! The school is bending over backwards for him and still...he's in la la land. We had a meeting last week, only a week after they rearranged his schedule to help him. (He only goes the first three periods, volunteers for a few hours and then goes back to school for night school) The latest meeting was to tell difficult child that he needs to hold up his end of things. As in....do his homework, treat his teachers with respect, quit mouthing off/lying...basically act like a reasonably responsible person. Or else. This is IT....his last chance. I spoke with his TOR today....he's STILL not doing it. The dean of students and head of special services have left it up to the teacher to file for expulsion. IEP or not, it's going to happen. They have done everything for him but the work itself. His teacher is going to give him a couple of more days but I have no doubt it will happen. He's not doing his homework, he's lying about why, he's getting mouthy with her when she questions him on ANYTHING or is getting an attitude when he's expected to do what he's supposed to. Once he's out of school, he loses his Medicaid which in turn means he loses his medications. They cost over $1000 a month without insurance and there is no way we can afford them. We've told him over and over and over what will happen...he either doesn't believe us or doesn't care. I'm thinking he's going to be in for one heck of a surprise when this all happens because we've also told him he won't be living here. I won't have him here when he's off his medications and I won't have him here if I don't have to when he has no respect for us and our home. I don't know what he thinks is or isn't going to happen but this is going to be a lovely holiday season.
