What a miserable day.

Monday, July 09, 2012

My teenaged daughter, who is a pill most of the time (she has autism, and don't ever let anyone tell you autism isn't a challenge) has been horrid today. Horrid. It culminated in her throwing a 400$ plus computer on the floor as hard as she could, because she was told to do a job. Computer, laptop and cell are gone now, whisked away to the land of Mama's Not Going to Keeping Buying You Stuff.

After having been chastised by all of the social workers for not contacting the police, I had to promise them that the next tantrum along these lines will result in police intervention (which will end up in a 3 day confinement followed by a transfer to somewhere 'appropriate').

At least she is honest. She says flat out "I'm lazy, and I refuse to do anything."

    This is maybe the 10th or 12th thing she's broken in the last day or two trying to "make" me do what she wants. In the past, she has physically attacked me. Now that there's no other adult in the house, they can't risk her killing me (and she doesn't hesitate to tell anyone who will listen that she will, if I don't do as I'm told). Thus, while I don't want to see her placed in a center again, it is now her "choice" by her actions. The world will not cut her a break and attacking a police officer or gang member who tells her what to do could end up being fatal.

    Teenage girls suck. I can't imagine having one with autism. Why should you report it? Just wondering because it seems they would give a child with problems a break. Which is not my opinion. I don't live in your shoes. I just have noticed how kids in general are not disciplined. I am proud of you for trying btw. May God's presence keep you sane.
