This blog is my place to vent and share resources with other parents of children of trauma. I try to be open and honest about my feelings in order to help others know they are not alone. Therapeutic parenting of adopted teenagers with RAD and other severe mental illnesses and issues (plus "neurotypical" teens) , is not easy, and there are time when I say what I feel... at the moment. We're all human!

Suspicious Circumstances

Got Bear's first exam grade. English final exam - 76. Final semester grade: 57. Last semester grade: 83. Final grade: 70. He passed.

The progress report we were given just yesterday said he had a 25 for this 6 weeks so far. Suddenly he has a 35. Just enough to add to his average to give him a 70. This is the teacher who sent me an e-mail saying she thought the girl she'd assigned to help Bear finish a project Bear was supremely late on, had done most of the work, "but at least it's turned in." Coincidence?

I know what you mean. Miss M's reports always have a grade or two whited out and changed up a grade. Odd?

You are doing all that you can do Mom! You are awesome!

It is a shame Bear will have to learn the hard way- as an adult. You are giving it everything you've got- hang in there. {{{Hugs}}}
