SS14 in trouble.
This week my ss14 got into a physical altercation with another student at school. Both kids received in school suspension. My ss14 received a "feelings packet" to work on while in suspension. According to bm, one of the questions was "how can you fix this problem?" And ss14 wrote suicide, quitting school, blowing up the school. Of course this was not taken lightly by the principal, so bm was contacted to pick ss14 up from school. He also told the principal that he was going to quit school, get a job so he could help take care of his family, that his mother is never home, and that she never tells him she loves him, hugs him, etc., that the clothes he was wearing his child support paid for.
Dh and I are upset to learn this. We both have a good relationship with him and he rarely gives us any problems. We only get him eowe, alternate holidays, and extra time during summer, attend all of his activities. Dh and I think he needs more time with us now, because obviously he has issues with his mother.
Ss14 has to go to alternative school for the rest of the school year and has to see a therapist/psychiatrist on Monday. Hopefully he will be able to attend his regular school the next school year.
Bm wants all four of us, her and her dh, and me and dh to have a sit down meeting this Sunday to discuss what has happened. Of course we are nervous. Ss14 is really a good kid, great personality, and makes good grades at school. But something is not right at bm's house or he wouldn't feel the need to tell his principal those things. I'm just looking for support and insight.
