For the past few months Deeanna has been a completly changed girl. She does her chores (cleaning out the horse stalls, laundry, house cleaning) with out complaint. She enjoys doing some of them. She keeps her room meticulously clean. I have imposed a curfew on her and she has yet to break it unless she calls in a timely fashion. She cooks and bakes with my mom (who just adores her). It is almost like aliens abducted the old Deeanna and left this one in her place. I leave in dread fear of them bringing the old Deeanna back.
Today, she got into a fight in school. A bad one. The other girl had to get stitches because Deeanna opened up a slice under her eye. Both Deeanna and the other girl are going to be in ISS for a while.
I am at a loss about what to do. The old Deeanna of a couple of months back I would have known how to handle. But now that she has been acting and behaving so well, I do not know what would be appropriate.
I do not want her to think that she can't catch a break but then I really can't just let this go either.
