So this was our threat this weekend. During a full blown meltdown/rage. We said no. difficult child 16sd. She overheard husband say he was considering sending her and her bro back to each of their moms. He was angry speaking. Tired/worn/frustrated. I couldn't even answer him while he was ranting. This has been weighing on her mind. She doesn't want to be here but has no where else to go. And she knows this is the best place for her for the time being. All of this started with her being deceptive (texting off her sisters phone) But she is angry it was not her or her phone why is she grounded. It was all easy child fault. HELLO this was her "just a friend" that she was texting thru easy child. Do they really think we are so stupid? So shes on the phone with this boy and asking when easy child will be home they are supposed to go to the store. (she wants to go see the guy, code name STORE..this is the second attempt in two days...easy child ignored her the first time...she got tired of being roped into difficult child's plans) We ask her to get off the phone. I can not believe she has the audacity to do all of this on the heels of this week from hell. Really again do they think we don't know??? So she ignores us and husband went in and had her hang up. Then she ranted. We explained they blew this way out of proportion. It was actually TRUST that was the issue. Which has always been the issue with her. She went on shes a prisoner here yada,yada, yada. She goes on with how she just wants to go hang out with friends (poor choices..not the best idea..we let her go on trial basis... the results are usually bad) we should trust her. she wouldn't do anything wrong. SHe has a family wedding. Not keen on her going (she can't go unsupervised) anyhow it escalates to how she hates this house. Actually reaffims all of our concerns. She is still just biding her time. She is resigned herself to leaving at 17. It is just so sad to see that there is no progress on this front. It just makes me feel so defeated. husband and I always talk about this but it is so much harder to hear her say it.
