I heard that she had so many problems with having him in the public school, with his issues, she finally pulled him out and homeschooled him. Sounds like she really tried to raise him right, with his best interest at heart.
I know how hard it is to have a kid endlessly screwing up, (or other severe issues...) and not knowing what the heck to do. My 15 year old son is in a "facility" right now. No matter how hard I tried, or what I did, he just kept finding a way to get in trouble. I'm hoping this is his wake up call, and when he gets home, there will be no more of this behavior... I hope and pray. Its SCARY, and you love them, it's your child.
I dunno. Something went horribly wrong there. So sad she is being blamed.
