I know this doesn't actually mean anything officially. But difficult child was diagnosed with it. Here's a couple examples of his thinking disorder. We are in court the second time for him bringing weapons to school. He's 11. (The weapon was a broken BB gun that looked real, and a five inch sharp pocket knife). He's nervous. Sitting in shackles in the jury box are a bunch of teen kids, big scary looking kids in jump suits. There's a 16 year old girl who's mother has been to court so many times she refuses to come any more, and refuses to take her home. The judge puts her mother on speaker phone and acts very firm and strict, "we aren't a babysitting service", "she's YOUR daughter", but the woman won't come. The girl has been rejected by all the Residential Treatment Center (RTC)'s in the area and he doesn't have the authority to put her in jail, she hasn't broken the law. The social worker finally finds her a place in Jacksonville about 5 hours away. difficult child's eyes are huge, he's fidgetting--it never occurred to him that a parent would get rid of you and even the JAIL wouldn't want you. Then there's a 12 year old sitting next to the jury box, also in jump suit and shackles. He's sullen and bored and looks like he's crying quietly. A couple months earlier, he took a baseball bat and killed his 2 year old cousin because her crying bothered him while he watched cartoons. husband says, "There aren't many kids your age in jail. If you end up there, and you will if you don't stop taking weapons to school, he will be your roommate." difficult child looks terrified. The kids is about twice his size, and a murderer to boot. (the threat wasn't enough tho, within 9 months, difficult child took a paring knife and then a razor blade to school). Before the judge deals with the hardcore felons, he deals with the kids and parents sitting in the back of the court. One by one the kids with their parents shuffle up before the judge, 15, 16, 17--stealing cars, weapons, A&B, etc... They all have attitudes, sullen or smooth and cocky. The first thing the judge asks each kid, "How are your grades"? One after another they lie. "Pretty good your honor." And the judge sends them back to sit down, and has the clerk check. Then he calls them back up to the podium and yells at them. difficult child is nervous. He whispers, "What do I tell him. My last report card? Or my last take home folder?" difficult child back then was getting pretty much all As, but in the most recent folder got a D. We tell him to do his report card, since the judge's clerk is going to check his report card grades on her computer. So finally it's his turn and he goes up there. And judge asks him what his grades are and he says, "Very bad. I have bad grades. I get all Ds." My husband is upset and corrects the error, and the clerk checks, and the judge is like, "So what's the deal here." My husband explains this is part of the problem, difficult child lies about EVERYTHING. So the judge bawled at difficult child. Of course, my husband asks him afterwards, why did you lie? Naturally, difficult child 'didn't know' and 'thought the judge meant....<insert rambling explanation that has nothing to do with anything>', and 'was just trying to do the right thing', and 'because he didn't want to go to jail'.
