Eeyore is having such a hard time with the way the world is and the way he thinks it should be. Of course, it is all my fault cause if I was a 'cool' parent then he would be 'cool' and able to hang with the "in crowd". I'm 99% certain that he doesn't even know who the "in crowd" is as the names he mentions of the kids he wants to be like are all Special Education, lower social skills kids. I don't want to bust his bubble that the 'in crowd' likely includes the varsity quarterback, the head cheerleader, the prom queen, etc and not the remedial freshmen. He has been sneaking wheat food because he thinks that not eating wheat is part of what is making him uncool. He feels since he ate the crackers in the middle on the night on Saturday and we didn't catch it until today that he should be home free. Um, no, but it does explain many of his behaviors since school started (he has also been eating wheat at school). You would think that when he feels bad enough to call me crying from the restroom that he wouldn't like that feeling, but since there isn't an instant reaction to the wheat, he refuses to admit that they are tied together. I'm so glad that we did not move him out of the Special Education reading class. I think he needs all the support he can get. I think I am going to ask for an IEP meeting to get him back into social work services. I don't see him navigating high school social scenes without the in-school help.
