In this country there is a law that says schools must educate your child with whatever it takes to teach them. This doesn't mean you have to drug your child or we won't take him, it means they will find a program that can handle him. At their expense. If this means he needs to go to a special private school, then that is what they have to pay for. I'm convinced that today teachers would rather drug kids then teach them and handle them appropriately. We didn't have kids that acted out in school, because if we did, we got sent home to Mom, and really heard it from her. I had one teacher who loved to pull hair, I'm not condoning that, but it was effective, lolol.
If the child is miserable then he deserves treatment so that he isn't suffering, but not because a school dictates. Does the child see a pediatric psychiatrist? Or some kind of behavior modification?
The mom raises the child unless her rights are removed. If the child is not safe or being abused, the mother is drug addicted, or the like, you have something to deal with and can report this. Otherwise, besides of you offering to help out to babysit, etc., there is nothing that you can do to help. It is sad, disturbing, and may even be frightening. But that is the law here in the US. Reporting to the local social services is for the protection of the child, not for the punishment of the mother. You love your daughter unconditionally? Then be her support and listen to her. It is the best help you can give. At this point it sounds like you are calling her an unfit mother. So tell me how you would react if you were called the same for errors you have made over the years. We all do. Ann Landers used to say mind your own business. Grandchildren are a blessing, said a comic, especially when they go home at the end of the day. Love that daughter and I hope she will open up. It must be terribly hard on her. But if there is some real abuse, provable not fantasy, then you can report. Ok? You are her rock. Stay strong and open.
