I'd say something like, it seems like you're missing school a lot because of your period. Let's take you to the doctor, maybe it's something serious. See if she wants to come home then!
Oh she'd say yea because anything is better than school.

Need to send her my way...kids get grounded for Cs or below. My daughter did that ONCE, 6 weeks with no phone or life made her change her tune fast.
Yea that shit doesn't work here, I've taken everything from her, she still won't do it...she will then throw temper tantrums and act like a huge asshole. She is a super stubborn ass as a child she was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD...I took all her shit so she'd go to bed at a decent time...she stayed up till 2 staring at the wall to spite me.

That's who she is.

She would cave eventually. Mine had six weeks without it. I'm sorry you are going through this, teenagers can be jerks.

My boyfriends son is ODD. So freaking fun.

I can't ask him to do or quit doing anything without major freak outs. If I ask my two other sons not to do something, he will start. In front of me, before I even finish speaking sometimes, and then throw a tantrum when I call him out. No nonsense here.

My 8 year old son has ADHD. I've taken away everything from him at times and it's like he cares but doesn't. He doesn't understand the consequences of his actions, just acts like I'm the bad guy. Glad to see it's only going to get worse when he's a teenager.

ODD just means your kid is an asshole, that's how I take it. If anyone had displayed that when I was growing up they'd have gotten beat with a belt.

As long as one of the parents is a total enabler then nothing is going to change. The kids are a symptom of the problem. It sounds like Mom is the one who needs dragged for her kids' behavior.

She's better than she use to be when it comes to the little freak outs about stupid shit...however she still will not in any way shape or form do something she doesn't wanna do.

Hence failing at school and not caring.

I know she's trying to be nice...it's not a fun spot to be in, to walk that line of being caring with a kid that is really difficult.

Sorry to hear that. I can definitely imagine my son skipping school when he's in middle and high school even though he likes school now.

Oh lovely stepsons mom took him to another doctor for a second opinion after he was diagnosed and apparently that doc said "well, it could just be personality, but more likely ODD" and so magically she says he doesn't have ODD.

And after how she reacted to her kid having a problem, I wonder if it isn't a personality thing. But don't get me started on her. Gotta throw the whole lady away....

My daughter is in therapy due to her mother's shitty behavior over the years and I threw her mother right under that big ol' fucking bus. When the doctor recommended psych therapy for my daughter I went to friend of the court and petitioned them to order her mother to attend at least one session a month with her so they can get on the same page and so my ex can finally be told exactly how to parent.

It's not fun and some parents are more concerned with wanting to be a best friend and keep peace in the house instead of help their child develop but it isn't doing anything productive - it is just letting your kid learn that they can be a lazy asshole for their entire life and someone else will take care of them.

My wife's parents did the same shit with my wife and her siblings growing up. The result is that while my wife and I have no debt and my wife makes nearly $40,000 a year and only pays property taxes. Her mom pays for her fucking cell phone and car insurance.

I wonder what happened to Zoltars....maybe they're sick, or maybe they broke up with us, they could've at least left a note...
They've betrayed me and broken my heart for the last time. Next week while I sit here crying into my coffee waiting for them, I won't be surprised anymore and each week it will hurt a little less.

Eventually you'll be able to wake up on a Tuesday morning without even thinking about them.

Right about then is when they'll reappear and be all "I've missed you"
