If there is anyone...anyone at all that can help me out there? Then now is the time for it. I feel completely helpless and feel a complete and utter failure as a mother. My son is now attending a new school. I pulled him out and home schooled him for about a year after his grandmother died in a tragic accident. He was bullied and teased horribly by the children at school prior to that, but it was much worse after his grandmother died. The children thought it was funny. So, I pulled him out and home schooled him. We have moved to a different state and are now living in the country, so I figured that this would be a fresh start. He has been diagnosed with ADD, high anxiety disorder, and depression. He is a very good looking boy, but he must act a certain way to other kids to make him a target for bullying. At least that is what the schools he attended always said, because he has always been bullied. He had an IEP with his old school, but the new one has yet to implement any of it. They said they were going to retest him, but haven't. He hasn't been in his new school a month and has already served two days in school suspension (1 day for fibbing and 1 day for running around in the classroom), one day out of school suspension (for a jump rope being wrapped around another kid on the playground--something the teacher did not see and something my son swears he didn't do/I believe him-I know when he's telling a lie), silent lunches, recess detentions, and three days suspension off the bus for turning in his seat to talk to someone behind him. My son is not bringing home his homework. I have taken his dirt bike, his games, his laptop, and spanked. Nothing is working! He has always been difficult. I honestly believe that he just doesn't care! I'm at my end! I always received letters home from his old school because he was withdrawn, depressed, and never socialized. Now, I'm getting letters and phone calls that he is talking too much, not following directions, not on task, not paying attention, and running around in the classroom. The school wants a conference and I don't even know what to say to them. Yes, I believe this is the strictest school that my son has ever attended. The stuff he got in trouble for would have been recess detention for a few days at the other school he attended. This school cracks the whip and loves suspension. The harder you are on my son, the worse he is! That's one thing I know about him. What do I do? Someone, please give me some advice. I have never felt so lost. Thank you.
