Doesn't answer the phone on weekends? *headdesk* Kiddo attacked me (again) over getting a shower. She doesn't want to smell like the stinky neighbors downstairs (long story) but refuses to shower. There's respite care for kids 11 and under in the area, but they apparently don't answer phones on the weekends. There's not even an answering machine or anything. So either I ride out the tantrum (she's already drawn blood, thrown things, etc), I call the police to transport her to the hospital (I already packed a bag just in case), or I try transporting her myself (I'm shaking badly and don't trust myself or her for this option). I really don't want to go the psychiatric hospital route again, it's not very close by and while the nursing/basic staff is great the psychiatrists didn't impress me at all and were no help. She's mostly calm now but still refusing a shower. Kid needs one, she's starting to smell. This is one of those basket things and I don't press her on until it's obvious she really needs it, but she needs it. And she's still not entirely capable of washing her own hair yet, either. HELP.
