Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

No, they are not allowed to make you sign any thing that can hold you legally accountable unless they were directed to do so by a judge after a hearing during which you were also there and had been found deficient in some way by a judge or DHS official. There are procedures and laws in place to protect children as well as parents. If you are the legal guardian of your child, no one-not even a school, can over ride what you think is best for your child. The only other individual with an equal right is the child's father. Both of my parents are attys. My mother also worked as a teacher for 30 years as well as for dhs for 3 years. My sister, grandmother, and I are also teachers. I teach SPED for ED students as well as those with learning disabilities in NY and TN.
