was tonight. difficult child whined and complained, did not want to go, he knew who his teacher was (we both did) why did he have to go? I told him if I was going he was going. Repeated it several times, and off we went. At the school, he complained all the way to the front doors. I just ignored him ( I am getting good at that by now). We walked in the front doors, and he lit up. He was smiling ear to ear, hugged the vp, chatted with his teacher quite a bit, and on the way out hugged the principal. Amazing. This kid has been suspended every year, multiple times a year, since first grade. Everyone still loves him, and he loves everyone. I wish I knew what his secret is. Maybe the summer break is casting a golden glow.
