I requested input from Therapist and Program Manager about moving Daughter. I got Therapist's assessment today. She recommends setting a deadline, and if care isn't where it should be by then, move Daughter back home and hire help.
I was at a seminar on family systems theory and ministry today, and I received the email about lunchtime. I sat there in shock, wondering what to do. As the afternoon progressed, I think I found my answer. I'm going to suggest we shift our focus. Rather than focusing on getting the home to do it all perfectly, we need to focus on equipping Daughter to take responsibility for her own care.
I will tell her this is a step forward in her move towards independence. I believe moving her home would be a huge step backwards and her rebellion would be even stronger. I've been telling her for some time she has a voice and can use it to keep herself safe. I'm going to tell her she's been doing such a good job with that she's ready to take it to the next level. It will be challenging, and it will be a move forward, not a move backward.
