Wednesday afternoon and evening, Danielle had what I guess what could be called a "mild" temper tantrum, because she didn't like the scheduling of her doctor's appointment the following day.
I'm not going to bother detailing a blow-by-blow account, because it consisted of the same old routine of arguing, name-calling, and accusing us of various crimes that we've committed only in her mind.
But she did ask me a question that was pretty disturbing.
When I told her I didn't like her behavior, she responded with a veiled threat.
"Oh, so next time would you like me to stab you with a knife, instead?" she demanded.
Last night, FosterEema took Danielle to her weekly meeting with her therapist, and she shared Danielle's remarks.
The therapist remains concerned about the safety in our home.
I am frustrated.
If we have a kid who is threatening harm to self and others on a weekly basis, whose behavior has her parents, teacher, doctor, therapist and school officials all concerned, why is it that the powers-that-be won't hospitalize her?
It doesn't make any sense to me.
