For fighting. He's home for the next two days. I'm trying to think of things he can do do he doesn't think this is a vacation.
It always seems like there is some issue when he comes home from his mom's house. He got upset tonight and said he needed to go live with his mom so he could take care of her. I really think he thinks if he gets into enough trouble, we'll send him back or something.
I'm going to make some calls tomorrow to try to find a counselor for him. His relationship with his mom is really not healthy.
We have been through this same thing numerous times unfortunately. My SS has been suspended three times in the past 2 school years. We have had him read books related to the subject he is being disciplined for then write papers for us. Plus he is doing school worksheets we download from the Web during school hours, extra chores, lost privileges. And of course lots of counseling.
For us it's harder because there is zero consequences at his mom's (we have the step-kids week on/ week off) so he just grins and bears it then saunters over to Disneyland. Sigh.
Hang in there. I know it's really really hard right now.
