I have a 15 year old son who despite my best efforts keeps making bad choices. The last couple of weeks have been some real do-ies. The result is that I have been in the office several time over the past 2 weeks. each time the administration is convinced the kid is on drugs... i have tested him myself with a home kit (and yes i was in the room when he peed in the cup and he didn't have any forewarning of the test) and he was clean. I have also taken him the the doctors office (again no warning was given) and had him tested there (twice) and both of those were clean. I do random room checks and anything else i can think of and can't find a trace of anything and it seems the only place he is having trouble is at school (though he is a 'A' student). it doesn't seem to matter what i do i still can't get the school to look past their suspensions and look into what the problem could be. Could someone please advise?
FYI my son has a Learning Disability but i have never had the specific disability identified because he has been making progress with his IEP and I didn't want to label him unless i had to.
