Student of the Month?!?
Yes, the brat who failed 9th grade while living with DH and me last school year is now student of the freaking month at her new high school. DH had to rub it in my face this evening that his brat is continuing to do so well and I know he still blames me for everything going wrong last year.
This is bs. She’s taking half of her classes over again after she failed them. The other half she’s taking online. It’s a school with less than 200 kids in the middle of nowhere, so it’s not like there’s a lot of other students. They must have absolutely no criteria on character since she has none.
I’m just pissed off that we let this little bitch manipulate us so badly. She’s got to be so smug about this. All last year, she failed to turn in homework and deliberately flunked tests just to be as defiant as possible.
In our home, we had rules, structure and discipline which she rebelled against and successful got to go live where she wanted where she gets to do anything she wants.
Now she’s living with her aunt and uncle in another state where she’s treated like she’s 25 rather than 15. She’s staying in their basement, which has a separate entrance with her 18 year old half-brother. No curfew. No limits on her cell phone or internet, no rules at all. Her aunt and uncle do absolutely no parenting.
I’ve been telling DH that this is recipe for disaster and have been waiting for the I-told-you-so moment. But her grades are fine, so DH thinks there’s no issues with it. I know he’s thinking why we didn’t do this and how wrong I was for telling him he actually needed to be a parent.
In the write-up on the school’s website about it, it says she “overcame adversity” - apparently, living with your dad and evil SM where she was expected to obey rules is “adversity” now.
She’s still a disrespectful brat who cusses out her dad and wants him and me to go to hell, but apparently that’s fine for student of the month at her high school.
