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!

Kitty was admitted to a psych hospital this evening for suicidal ideations. If possible I'd like to keep the Parent/Teacher conference on Monday morning, to discuss how to handle her return.

She'll need school work to do at the hospital as well. I signed a release form for the hospital to talk to everyone. I'll go through her backpack tomorrow and see if I can find any work for her. I know she has a science project, but I'm not sure what kind of collection she can do in the hospital (unless you want a diorama of 10 psychotropic meds?).

Now Mary, don't go giving people the idea that one can put one's hands on 10 meds at once without actually taking them while in front of a nurse.

I laughed!

She can collect snack food wrappers and analyze how healthy the hospital food is ...

In a world of no good answers, you picked the best available option. Praying they figure out what she needs.
