You have a unique situation that shouldn't be handled as a typical truancy case. If you don't receive cooperation for this then I would go public. Good Luck!

I agree. If you can't afford legal help (and none is offered), I don't see what else you have as leverage - and you need some.

what kind of mistake?

is it ok to tell him that you made a mistake?


For example, I melted down (and chewed out the employee) once when McDonald's goofed up mine and my son's order.


So...did your son witness you going back and apologizing to the employee?

When i told him, to maybe remind me to do certain things now and then, he said he didnt want to be my father for 40 years.. Blah im so ...

It was awful to think that that was what I was supposed to have been doing with him all the hours in the first months when as far as I concerned there was nothing to do with him. I read Dickens and George Eliot, and he lay on his cushions near me. And never a word I spoke to him. ( Of course. Why s...

Do you attempt to hide your traits from your kids? mine remark on my preference to solitude which leaves me feeling uncomfortable/bad about myself I only have one child, and he has AS and seems largely oblivious to whatever I'm going through, so in some ways I guess that's a blessing for him. I try...

Everyone else was happily sharing biscuits and chatting about nothing. And when I heard something interesting and plunged in I gradually realised that I was being way too serious and taking over but once I was onto something, like breastfeeding or something equally important only one woman one of t...

The first time I felt like something was wrong with my parenting was at the very beginning when I read about how moms talk "baby-talk" to their babies. I don't do baby talk. I have a deep voice and it is monosyllabic and I am physically incapable of speaking any other way. I think "baby-talk" is st...

I feel SO BADLY for all the grief I gave our son over not learning to tie his shoes. He's extremely intelligent, and I knew I'd learned to tie my shoes around age 3, so I could not understand why he was balking so hard. I thought he was just acting spoiled. I know now it's related to the AS, but I d...

Unless you have exceptional resilience or an almost unlimited amount of resources, I don't recommend having more kids after have one on the spectrum. At the risk of attracting flames, I agree with this. I can't imagine having another child, after our first. We love him DEARLY, but we feel it would ...

Due to my issues, my husband's issues, and our son's issues, we will not be having any more children. I think it's wise to know one's limits, and our limit is most definitely ONE. It's a really personal choice. My mother used to say, "I wish I could just tie a brick to your head and keep you in the ...

All I can offer is I have observed a phenomena among lower-income-level blacks (I'm speaking of the kids, now) to tease and bully other black kids for what they call "acting white." "Acting White" means (in general terms) valuing education, speaking a more formal style of English, doing well in scho...

Speaking as a former child with multiple step-parents who wanted nothing to do with me and viewed me as "baggage" and a threat to their position and sometimes their children's positions, I just wanted to applaud you for giving a damn about your step-son. It is so refreshing to me to hear of a step-p...

Hey, did you just join up here? Did we meet over at LJ this morning? I'm SinAgua at LJ. Yes and hello again. :lol: Good to see you here - I hope you find this a helpful community. I have. :) And I still think you should threaten them with bad publicity, somehow. Do it wrapped in silk, but still do ...

I know how you feel. I have a younger brother who has no regard for belongings (he's nearly 20, so should have learned that by now) and just takes whatever he feels he needs or wants at any time. If he wants something of mine, he takes it. If he wants to go into my room or my things, he does. If he...
