Today, difficult child claims he didn't get to play long after lunch. Therefore, when the whistle blew to go inside, he didn't want to go. He ran from the para and threw rocks in objection. The para and recess aid got him inside, but not calm. He hit the door to the SpEd room several times, and they stuck him in the "safe room". Their report doesn't say anything about the work he was supposed to do after lunch, but he says he was supposed to do book on tape and he hates it. He spent 40 minutes in the safe room, yelling, spitting, kicking, screaming, and making threats. When I got there and got him out, I just took him home. There was hardly any specials time left. This whole week has been like this. Today almost seems like he was being a turn on purpose, but not being there, I'm not sure, and it was so-so para on the playground, and I have no faith in her ability to de-escalate him. Is he pushing her buttons just cause he can now? Or did they tell him he had to do book on tape? Why the heck can't my kid exist without being stuck in a supply closet??? I was supposed to go to KC tomorrow for meetings at work. The school requested an IEP meeting with difficult child's docs. One of those is scheduled for tomorrow at noon, but I don't think they're going to have it. To be honest, anxiety with all this is eating me alive, and 14 hours on the road is not sounding even remotely appealing. 13 days of school left. Except then, I have no faith in my summer care plans, either, so I don't know why I'm looking forward to school being out...summer care isn't required by law to keep him.. Oh, and I have a flat tire. Sorry for the whine. I've just had it.
