My husband and I met with Caroline's present therapist, which went well, and we agreed to bring Caroline back the next week to either say good bye or to agree to keep going. We know she will say she is done. But I have some great recommendations on new psychologists from the owner of Learning RX, which is helping Caroline tremendously with her processing speed and memory issues.
Caroline is giving us her phone. As much as we want her to be able to have a phone, she just can't handle it right now. She has been associating with the wrong people. Time to move. Really. I know a family who moved from a neighborhood because their daughter got mixed up with a boy and it was pretty bad and they needed to get her away from him. So they moved to a new neighborhood and their daughter was able to cut ties and turned out to be a wonderful kid who is now in college and doing great. I think we need to find a new environment for Caroline, away from the folks that are bringing her down. Maybe a new job will be the impetus for real change here.
Today is a new day, and hopefully a better one.
