More of the same I am so tired of difficult child having issues with that one child at school. Yesterday it was the After School program and while it is held at school it is not part of it. Again the child was giving difficult child a hard time, again difficult child retaliated. The dad again sent a long e-mail to all the powers that be. He showed up at 8:00 this morning demanding a meeting with the principals. husband happened to be in the office and he got in husband's face. He was yelling at husband and swearing. husband tried to explain that he wasn't excusing difficult child but that his child needed to leave difficult child alone and stop calling him names, etc... Of course, the dad said his son hasn't done any of that We are getting tired of not doing anything in response because husband works their. The dad is accusing difficult child of getting special treatment because husband and I are teachers in the district. If anything they have been harder on him in trying to be objective. In all of this the other boy has never received any consequences. husband did write a letter to the asst. superintendent saying that maybe it is time to tell the other side of the story as everyone keeps getting an earful from this dad but not from us. He is waiting for a response. I'm thinking at some point husband may need a restraining order. Then, of course, difficult child has to mess things up some more. He now has to be walked everywhere including the bathroom. He went in today and put his hand on a 3rd grader's face and hit his hand. He will be spending tomorrow morning in ISS. They will probably have to start having him use the staff bathroom so he can't get in any trouble. He just doesn't learn to keep his hands to himself!!!!! I go from feeling so angry with difficult child to also feeling sorry as he is under a tremendous amount of stress from that child picking on him and having to switch classes. On top of that, others are teasing him because he is breaking out with acne. Of course, none of this is an excuse for his violence. Tomorrow is his IEP and I don't even know what to ask for or expect at this moment. All I know is that this school year cannot end soon enough.
