So my daughter is having a meltdown as we speak and is bringing up the fact that I took her out of high school when she was 16. Here are my reasons: Since 8th grade, I got a call from the vice principle every other day about her behavior, always afraid that CPS was going to show up at our door. The sheer amount of stress of this had me banging my head into walls literally. Also, she would be late for school or miss school and we would catch hell for that too. 9th grade went ok fairly without any incident, except she got into one fight and missed quit a few days, but she passed. 10th grade is where it all went crazy. Every other single blessed day I was being called to that school for everything difficult child was doing. I was being harassed with phone calls by the school and being made to come to the school all the time. School was very far from me, eating up my gas and because of my own illness, was killing me. I was under real duress. She was constantly getting suspended. Then, if that wasn't bad enough, truancy got involved and in the state that I lived in, parents were held accountable for truancy and the whole year had truancy and jail hanging over my head which was very, very, very hard on me , every day was a living nightmare getting her up for school and the final straw was when her and her boyfriend got into a major fight at school in front of everybody. The final, FINAL straw was when the principle called me in for a serious meeting and surprised me with four printed out pages of threats my daughter made to another girl on twitter. Principle said "you are very lucky I don't have the police here right now, difficult child has one more chance" I knew my daughter was not going to be able to control herself so I pulled her little behind out of school and put her online school!!! Was I wrong for that???? She said I should never have given up on her but she doesn't understand the HELL I was going through!!! This is out of control! She still blames me for this and doesn't even want to look at how bad she was!
