This is the 2nd day of school. I asked difficult child how his day, and he said he got in trouble. Apparently difficult child told another boy ( a first grader) that he was going to beat him at tetherball. Now while that is rude, kids say that kind of stuff all the time. The other boy got mad and choked difficult child so difficult child pushed him away. The recess duty saw that and put difficult child on the wall and let the other boy play. She told him not to touch the other boy. Maybe the other boy should not touch him either. difficult child is upset, as he was just trying to get the other boy off him. Now, difficult child has lied to me about things before. Sometimes on purpose and sometimes because his version of things are skewed. I told difficult child to go talk to the vice principal. He said she does not care, that Mr. Principal is the only one who care. I told him to go talk to him tommorrow. I am trying to get difficult child to solve his own problems, he will start middle school next year and I am so worried aobout that. You know usually we can get through the first week!!!
