High Schooler is getting weirder and weirder. I smelled smoke and followed my nose to her room. She was setting paper on fire and throwing it out of the window. I found beer bottles and an opener in her room when I moved the bed...along with more idly burned items. She tried to tell me they weren't hers. Am I supposed to believe that some stranger has been drinking beer in her room?
I have an appointment on Monday for the final interview into the school program for at risk kids. I have to say I don't have a lot of hope for this program, either, because no program works if she refuses to attend. At least it gets her away from her current group of school friends who help her lie, cheat, steal and drink. Of course, if it's a program for at-risk kids, I'm sure she'll meet plenty of new lying, cheating, stealing, drinking friends.
