my bad ss and his wife have decided to return to school and rather than just go get the GED they enrolled in high school again.

I cannot even believe they let Patrick back in, he is now a freshman, should have graduated by now.  Poor C has got him in some of his classes.  We simply cannot allow this.  We were praying that C teachers didn't remember P and that C wouldn't get stuck with the 'OMG you are whose brother' before he had a chance to prove himself.  I just cannot believe it. Its ridiculous. Crazy and yeah.  I am beside myself. 

prayers please.

Hugs Stacy!  Of course I will pray for the situation.

Maybe if they are going back to school there has been some reform?  I mean, I can't imagine that they would go through the effort to get in without having some intentions of actually trying.

Part of it is cuz no one here will hire him. he thinks its cuz he has not finished school. It IS because its a small town and everyone knows his reputation for stealing.

Honestly I don't expect him to last at all. maybe not even a couple weeks, certainally not 4 years.

Stacy, I know this may not be what you want to hear, but ... it *could* be to everyone's advantage for P to return to school in that way ... if the high school is going to allow it, which I find odd at this point, but maybe?  If P is really trying to turn his life around (and why ELSE would he choose this path?), that's a good example for a LOT of young people.

I'm just thinking this might not be as bad as you think it is?

I'll hold ALL of you in prayer~

This is the same kid that was causing all the problems and you and W were going to meetings? Hm, that's weird, but like Julie said, maybe it's a good thing? Maybe he realized that he has to do something? I don't know! Good Luck with that!

I'm not really sure why nothing but the first post in this thread showed when I posted, but all I saw when I replied was the original post. I still have hope they have good intentions, but I can see you are kind of out of hope for anything good from him. Thinking of you~

It sounds crazy, but for them to have let him in, they must have set some guidelines. However I am not sure they can turn him away just yet? No matter why he is going back, if he thinks he needs to graduate to get a degree, these 4 years could be time for him to turn his life around. I realize he may cause problems, and not be an exemplary student, but he will have to abide by some rules if he wants to get through.

Hopefully the school can limit C's exposure in classes as he needs to be allowed to enjoy and fully experience his High school years without whatever influence his SB might have.

I think I am talking in circles, and while I have heard your frustration all along and know how worn out you are about the situation, I am going to hope that this might give SS an idea that he CAN succeed.

Thank you for the prayers.

one can hope but he has not made any changes at all at this point to turn anything around. he never commits to anything for more than a few hours or days.

It would be a miracle
the school can turn him away. he has been kicked out like 10 times and the last time it was to be a forever expulsion. i think his mom signed him out and so thats the only reason they let him back in.

we still continue to try to steer him on the right path and well same results. . . .

its sad that with all that P has ruined in the past years that now he is going to cause problems for his brother. My son will be fine he is only going half year.... but if P stays C will be stuck with him the whole time.
