difficult child is doing pretty good with his medications, I see some improvement, although I am sure that they will be increased. He still has trouble focusing and is still getting distracted. Overall I am pleased with how he is doing in such a short time. Can you say no major meltdowns since he started his medications?! That is absolutely unheard of around our house. Sure there has been whining and small fits but nothing like last week or the week before. Yea for progress! We do have an issue with school that I do not know how to handle. The dr wanted him moved to the front of the class, he was separated by himself in the back. (Yeah not real happy...brand new school for him and she put him off by himself...way to help him make friends and way to help his self esteem...anyway.) So she moved him to the front, apparently with other kids near him. Well Wednesday I asked him how his day was, as I do everyday, and he said it was ok. He said that the teacher was reading and said something funny so he laughed. He said the kids started making fun of him laughing and one started making fun of his ear (one ear sticks out more than the other and he is very self conscious of it). He said the teacher didnt really do anything. It hurts my heart so bad to know that some brat is making fun of something that my baby cant control. To top it all off I asked him yesterday how his day was and the teacher has again separated him from the group. I absolutely dont know what to do for him. Its not fair that she keeps pulling him off by himself, bringing more negative attention to him. She knows what is going on and that he was diagnosed etc etc. Isnt there some kind of rule or something that she cant do this? All of that to not even mention that this isnt his regular teacher...its a long term sub as his teacher will be out the first 8 wks of school, so I will have to explain and go through all of this again. I am so frustrated and aggravated with the whole school thing. I am not an aggressive person or one who just tells things like it is. So it is going to be very difficult for me to learn to be aggressive when it comes to these things. GAH! I hate being confrontational but it looks like I am not far from having to be that way.
