Yeah!!! I love being right!!! I told my dd that I would post something here and we would see what all the bright, insightful mama's on here would have to say! My dd was engaged for about 2 days...then said she wasn't ready to be engaged. He said to keep the ring and maybe later they would be engaged again, but for now it would be a promise ring. She has now broken up with the boy. I suggested that she give the ring back (not only because I feel it's the right thing...
I wish I knew how to actually do one of those polls...but I don't, so here goes. I wasn't sure which area to put this in...so I chose this one. If you were engaged and then YOU broke off the engagement (within a month or two of becoming engaged) would you give the ring back? *The reason for breaking off the engagement is only that you feel you two are not right for each other. There was no cheating/abuse involved...simply waking up and realizing that this wasn't...
I have always traveled alone with my dd! Since she was young it's only been the two of us on our journey's! We camp a lot by ourselves...and no mad man has gotten us yet!! You can do it! Give yourself extra time, don't over book yourself, and remember to relax yourself!! You'll love it!
Sounds like your dd might just want a little more control over her stuff...so she keeps it as she likes. It is her room, I'd give her a little more say over how it looks. I'm an organizing freak as well...I was happy to see that someone else labled the drawers!!! Another thing to try is to take pictures of how the room looks when clean. It's hard to say "clean your room" when obviously you two have a different idea of what that means. If you have a picture of the bed...
I would LOVE the silent treatment!!! My dd tends to either stand inches away from me and scream in my face or slam doors/throw things and turn the music up real loud. Honestly, if she gave me the silent treatment, I would let it be for a while, she's saying she needs time to cool off....let her!

The school will do what they need to do with him, they just can't discuss that with me (except to say that they have a 'plan'). They assure me that my dd will remain...
We just met with my dd's therapist. I am going to call the mom and tell her to not call my dd, that all communications need to go through me. My dd will not answer or make calls to the bf (now x) or his mom for at least one week. If they continue to call her cell, we will call the provider and find out how to block calls and go from there. It's just really important to me that my dd knows that this is NOT her fault, or her responcibility. HE has issues and HE needs to...
They generally don't call the house. They call our cells. The mom has never called me, but the boy has called my cell many times. They call my dd's cell at all hours (it's on vibrate or off at night, so they leave messages). My dd's disabilities are such that she *can't* not answer the phone...she doesn't grasp this concept. The social worker at school suggested my dd just turn her phone over to me for a while. I will talk to the therapist today when she comes and if I...

It's not about her not being able to stick up for herself, it's only about taking precautions to avoid that necessity. Already taken care of. I asked her to make sure that she always has at least one friend with her and to *never* be alone with the bf. Luckily he hasn't been in school yet this week,...
I have sole legal and physical custody...I asked for it during the divorce and he didn't fight it, no one ever questioned it. DD's dad started out by not being involved in her life (for about 3 years) then became very, very involved (for about 7 years) now for the last 3 years hardly ever sees her or talks to her. Our divorce was uncontested, and he never even showed up in court...
