I sent two of my boys to school with a very heavy heart today.
Quintus was physically sick yesterday from anxiety. He is getting his school report tonight and he is so stressed about it. It’s that in combination with getting into trouble at school. I have written before at the positive motivation system the school has. I expect of him to do well in that. I don’t expect perfect marks but I expect the boys to be well behaved at school. I know that they are when they do well in the motivation system.
They are apparently now working in groups. Just really stupid at their age fine and dandy. When one of the kids dont’ behave well, they ALL get a mark next to their name. In a very humiliating way, since they have to walk to one of the teacher to tell her they misbehaved. I find this very unfair. They don’t get to choose the group. They dont’ have the right to remove the naughty child from their group. How can they all then be punished? I know this causes him a lot of anxiety. So that combined with the report, was probably just too much. I will have a talk to his teacher tonight about this whole group punishment issue.
Then little Zander. My poor baby guy fell at the day mom on Friday. I knew today would be difficult to get him to stay. It was. He wouldn’t put his bag down. He kept it in his hand and as soon as I started to make a move to leave, he would pack up his breakfast and put it in his bag. He did not want to stay. At least not without me. My heart felt so sore when I left.
At least Jason went with a happy heart. Man that guy loves school.
