I don't know what to think. I've read a ton about ODD, CD, Bi-Polar, etc. and my children's birth mother was bi-polar. If you look-up my previous posts, you'll see what went on with my children and see what is going on right now with my daughter. In the past couple of months alone, she has been doing some pretty extreme acting out. She steals just about every day. Her thefts are pretty bold too. She doesn't even care if people see her doing it half the time. If she WANTS IT SHE TAKES IT. She's only sneaky that adults don't catch her except of course that eventually, kids tell on her and we do catch her. She's also engaging in behavior that could be percieved as leading up to risky begavior in the near future. If she weren't so small for her age, she would probably be promiscuous. (Boys show no interest in her...partially because she is so bizarre and moody.) Does anyone have any advice about all of his theft? We have an ARD tomorrow. If there were not less than 2 weeks of school left, she would be sent to an alternative school for sure. As it is, she is kicked out for next year. We are trying to get her into a behavioral support class but I'm afraid they will send her to an alternative school anyway because she is out of control. Does anyone have experience with this? She's even stealing from my purse.
