We have all been frustrated with difficult child's fantasy thinking aout her future: big scholarship money, getting rich, living in a big house and not having to work, etc... husband has been getting aggravated with difficult child and finally confronted her on some of this stuff. He told her point blank that with her current diagnoses and medications, she is likely not eligible to join the military, let alone qualify for the prestigious miliatry scholarship. He told difficult child that she'd better make plans to get some kind of a job that will let her support herself when she turns 18 - because we are no longer living with her behaviors at that point. We have had ENOUGH. So... The very helpful Behavior Therapist took difficult child to the admissions department at the local techincal college....and told difficult child she would be eligible for TONS of financial aid the moment she moved out of our house...and wouldn't even have to have a full-time job to go to school! Yay! Isn't it wonderful? Um....what??? If difficult child is moving out of our house...but won't have a job - how the heck is that going to work? Not to mention the FAFSA will NOT consider difficult child an "Independent Student" just because she turned 18. And why is difficult child being taken to fill out college applications while she is failing classes in high school right now??? So instead of the "Military Scholarship" fantasy - we've just substituted the "Financial Aid, No Effort Necessary, Free Ride" fantasy. I'm all for inspiring difficult child to think about her future - but this is just nuts!
