in his computer class by the kid that sits next to him. He mentioned to me a week ago or so that this kid takes pleasure in reaching over and typing garbage on difficult child 1's keyboard WHILE he's trying to work. He also verbally harrasses him, and if difficult child 1 leaves his seat, the kid will either mess up whatever is on his screen or delete the file entirely. At first, I told difficult child 1 to talk to the teacher and try to get it resolved. He says he has, on several occasions, but nothing happens. When he told me it's still happening today, I fired off a very direct and insistent email to the teacher and copied the school counselor, stating that the situation was clearly intolerable and must be addressed immediately. I also asked her to move difficult child 1 as far as possible from the other kid's seat. Can't believe this is the start of the 3rd week of classes and this kind of crap is still going on. difficult child 1 also has IBS (on top of his Crohn's) and I made sure the teacher understood that this is creating an unreasonable amount of stress for difficult child 1 and that it can affect his health. No word yet back from anyone, but their day is not over yet (I happened to pick difficult child 1 up early because he wasn't feeling well and ended up taking him to lunch, then back to school). Just once, I'd like to get through a day without having to stress over somebody's issues. STAR, WHERE IS MY EASY BUTTON??!!!
