I'm about to lose my mind.
Loki (the kid) informed his teacher today that he was trying to get in trouble. He's always had behavior problems when there isn't a parent present. In kinder, we actually attended school with him, all day, every day. And he was fine, as long as we were in the room. Not even talking to him/interacting with him.
It's gotten better every year. Until this. I don't even think the behavior was worse than usual (Loki can't keep his hands to himself), just the attitude...he's on a list to be tested for various things, chief among them Oppositional Defiance Disorder. I'd love to get him tested sooner but we can't afford to put him on my insurance, Q's job doesn't offer insurance, and for some unknown reason, the state calculates my income even though I have no legal rights to the child so he doesn't qualify for state insurance (don't get me started on that).
I'm so frustrated.
