Today I found out that two of difficult child's friends were in court yesterday. They are both being charged with felonies for selling amphetamines and thc. One of the boys is the one that left a bong in difficult child's car, resulting in the bail jumping charges. The other one is a smart, talented boy from a well-respected family. Now they may have felonies at the age of 18. I talked to difficult child about it and he said he had already heard about it. He's been exceptionally polite and respectful the last few days. He is acting like himself again while I keep holding my breath and waiting... Maybe hearing the news shook him up a bit. On another note, difficult child's counselor called me today to tell me his drug test came back negative, but they want to retest him because it was quite diluted. I didn't even tell him we were going for a drug test until right before I picked him up. I told him to drink a water bottle on the way because he doesn't like going to the bathroom in front of the guy and I always have to wait so long. I'm beginning to wonder if this place WANTS to see kids fail the tests.
