Sooooo tired today, but feeling better emotionally... 10-13-2004 - 08:08 PM
After yesterday's upheavals, today was a whole lot easier than yesterday. For one thing, DS's Phys-Ed teacher called and we had a long, long chat. Turns out that things were a little different than DS perceived it: yes, the teacher made a pass at him, and yes another child told DS "no, let me have it" but, unlike DS's story, the kid didn't rush DS in order to get the ball. DS just let it go, listening to the kid and letting his feelings be hurt

DS has a huge self image problem and needs to work on his self-esteem, big time. Yes, there has been tons and tons of improvements over the past year. However, this is a new behavior: he just runs away from the situation and goes home. He really needs to face the situation and to learn to deal with it. His aide and I are taking the required steps to have him work with the school's psychologist.

BTW, his teacher and I discussed the possibility of doing something else than team sports, but he told me that that wasn't a possibility: they are working out outside for another 3 lessons and will be playing team sports. So I will have DH (the sportsman of the family, along with DD) play with him and give him tips.

The teacher also told me that this was one of the worst classes he's had to deal with in 32 years of teaching: there's supposed to be only up to 11 students in this special ed classes, but there are 18. And DS and the other child who shares the Aide are not the worse cases!!! So it's basically a matter of dealing with children dealing with different types of learning and behavior disabilities!!!

I'm also taking steps to ensure that he's still got the support of the aide, next year. Thankfully, at last night's PTA meeting, I had a nice chat with the President of the Special Ed committee and he agreed to work with me on this issue. He knows what this is all about: one of his son as Asperger and another one has ADHD!!!

With all of these issues, and my getting to the PC so late last night, I went to bed really, really late again and woke up soooo tired this morning. I did go to work (I have too many things to do) but left a little earlier than usual. When I got home, DH was napping and did the same. DH was soooo angry when MIL woke us up by addressing DD in a very loud voice: it was almost 6:30 and she hadn't even started supper!!! And it wasn't like it was a complicated meal: it was rice with sauteed chicked and vegetables!!! The vegetables and sauce come in a frozen package and you just add it to the meat: even I can fix it up, no problem!!!

The hardest part about tonight was getting through the homeworks: both kids had about an hour's worth of homeworks and were both getting frustrated!!! And so were mom and dad!!!

Hi Dany, I'm glad that you are able to have so many understanding people to help you and your son.

I'm sorry that your MIL isn't as much of a help anymore. That must be extremely draining emotionally as well as physically. Hopefully, the situation will improve soon. S to you!~Moonchime

Dany, I'm so glad things went better and that you were able to get a clearer picture of what was going on with the gym class.
I'm glad the school people are working with you.

I have no words about your MIL.... I'll just send --- and kudos to you for helping with the kids' homework even though you were so tired! you are a Mom who never gives up!

Yeah Dany! (dh sounds like a great Dad too !! Your children are blessed)

Hi Dany, I am glad you were able to get more detail about what is going on in your son's gym class. They really have their hands full in that class if they have 18 special needs kids, and should only have 11. At the very least, they should add another aide into the class to help out. It could become quite chaotic in a class like that.

We have a SEAC committee here as well ( Special Education ), and that is a very good way to make yourself heard. You are probably speaking up on behalf of the other children in that class as well. Thank you for being such an involved parent, no wonder you are so exhausted.

By the way, I've been helping 12 year old DS with his French homework. He finds it difficult, and I loved it when I was growing up. I took it for quite a few years, but have forgotten most of it now. It's a beautiful language.

Hope you get caught up on your rest,

s, Anne
