I was at the store and ran into one of difficult child's old teachers from elementary. She had seen my letter to the editor (I posted about it here) in the paper and said she was very glad I wrote it. She thought it was very well written and she cut it out to show other teachers who may not have seen it. She's actually the first person to say anything to me about it so I was glad it was positive. After I sent it in, I reread it and kept second guessing myself...maybe I should have said this or that, maybe it sounded stupid...etc. So I'm glad that someone liked it.
