Really, 3 bad days are possible?
First off there is nothing going on here, nothing new, or exciting. Frankly it is boring here. GO BORING. There is no drama in my house, it is not allowed. (Well other than me being upset about the dog)
Second, I think my suspicions are right. For those who have not been reading long. SR did go through IQ testing, he maxed it out. I also know IQ tests are one of those things that folks can argue all day about. However, until someone comes up with something better, it is a tool we decided to use to help our child. We did not use it to simply say WOW. We used it is a tool to show the educators what kind of child we are dealing with. We need to accommodate him, his learning style and his needs. Just like children who have other special needs.
Third it is almost painful to put anything down in the blog...as I am always waiting to defend myself or him.
As with all bloggers, this is where I cash my chips, it is a document of my life, and my feelings about it.
So with all of that said. I picked up SR today, this time in the principals office. Nothing bad, he told the teacher, he was sensitive, and headed down his bad path, and needed to leave the room. However I do not think he made it there nearly soon enough.
We will continue to work on this, and have a meeting with the school this week. The kid is BORED. He is sitting in a classroom in which he knows everything, they are going over. My request is simple. A science mentor.
The child needs confidence. He needs achievement, it is what drives him. Sitting with his peers is not working.
He is currently in swim, Cubscouts, and church activity. I think music lessons are next on the list.
3 bad days....I am exhausted, and I am not even him.
I will be busy this weekend, Thanksgiving here at the house, Christmas program at church, and PN's family birthday. Some company is already here...
Want to feel like a failure, become a mother. There are somedays, where even the best cheerleader wants to hang up her pom poms.
