No catchy subject line, just plain ole good news to report, fellow steptalkers.
Husband is stepping up. Toxic Troll is stepping back. SD16 has been ditching one class in particular. Has not been doing her school work.
Husband called the principal. Talked. Spoke with counselor. Was referred to a teacher, they spoke too. Husband got the nitty gritty details of things, even wrote them down. Took a phone pic, texted SD16 SMPS, told her she will get these items done or phone taken away. Saturday school every weekend to clear absences (why not last weekend, oh wait, party!). She was with Toxic Troll as its her week, and shes able to do child transport herself lately.
Husband texted same things to Toxic Troll. BOTH texted back "ok" to his edicts.
We had a conversation whereby we revisted how Freshman year 2020 went. The steps I took (identical), the blowup that ensued when after several weeks of my efforts (zoom meetings, excel spreadsheet of all classes with missing assignments, purchased art supplies, money spent on rewards - new bed! art workshop!) I saw the decrease in efforts and said I would take phone...
Hes stepping up. I was very supportive. He was calm. Lets see if things improve (50/50 chance). I know for sure that I wont be involved. I also know that Toxic Troll wont threaten full custody again.
