What a miserable day.

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."
