On a good day, parenting will test the integrity of your character. On a bad day, parenting will test your will to live. Parenting children with trauma histories will cause you to test the integrity of everything and everyone you thought you knew, for the rest of your life.

The Wait Is Over

19 days.  Well, 17.  The teachers didn't turn in the discipline referrals for her infractions on Wednesday until today which means she serves ISS on day 19 of the school year.

Her grandmother wins the prize.  She gave Sissy 21 days.  Here's to grandmothers holding out hope! I really didn't think Sissy would make it this far.

The school finally submitted the CCETS referral on Tuesday but... wait for it... they will probably deny it because, well, because it's a referral from a parent and not from the school. Now, the school agrees - they are not equipped to support Sissy at their facility and she needs alternative placement.  But the county?  Ah, there's another story.

haha - go figure. My son made it 8 days. I mentioned that they might want to contact the school social worker for ideas on how to handle him in class and was told, "oh yeah, we have a new one starting tomorrow and he is first on the list to see her". I also mentioned that a behavior plan would be valuable - she didn't know what one was (this was a special education biology teacher - maybe she's new too?). I didn't get all bent out of shape and I didn't promise to make him behave - it is just a waiting game now until they come to the conclusion on their own that he needs more - cuz this mama is tired of being called "negative" and not supportive when they give us no services and I predict just these outcomes. Ahhh....the drama just continues for us doesn't it?
