So I emailed our pediatrician about difficult child having a terrible time adjusting to middle school/7th grade. I told her that I think he has flown under the radar in earlier grades because Montessori is so flexible. But this year expectations are high and there is not as much flex with deadlines. Anyway eh is add for sure wont medicate, hates side effects. But I think difficult child may have add as we'll as being totally odd sometimes. Maybe the odd is his way of dealing or reacting to what is going on in his head. Anyway, she gave me the Vanderbilt questionnaire for me and for the teacher. So I filled mine out and school will do it by tomorrow so hopefully we can talk about medications soon. I know some people are against medications but what if they help him? I didn't think he would agree to take them in the past, but I think even he knows he needs help now. Tonight he has a chapter of math, 35 problems and a book review to do. I've reminded him three times now, but he is in his room playing, hanging out and I am sure has it started. Which means I will have to nag after dinner. It's like it is impossible for him to just freaking sit down at his desk and have the discipline to do his darn work! He knows its due tomorrow. It is end if quarter tomorrow. I cannot sit on I'm to make him do it and if I get negative or push he shuts down further. Argh! I do not. Know how I will get through the next six years thru graduation. I don't know how he will ever pass if he cannot do the work.
