My oldest daughter was suspended from school for being in possesion of a knife. We had to attend a disciplinary hearing where I was basically offered the choice of taking my daughter for a psychological evaluation or her getting expelled from school. There have been a lot of other issues with her at school, from skipping class to cruel comments being made towards her from other girls, consistent dress code violations etc, and they seem to feel as though she needs psychological help and even medication. Unfortunately they are well within their rights to issue this kind of threat and I don't know what to do. I don't think a psychiatrist will get anywhere with Keila, and there's nothing really wrong with her, just adolescent angst.
Any advice? What would you do in this situation?
