hello: i posted here a few weeks ago and got some wonderful advise. I need more!!!! difficult child has had 2 visits now with our new psychologist and so far she seems to think the school is not doing their part. DUH!!! His teacher is a mess. she just keeps bullying him...with her "its my way or the highway" attitude and she is getting no where with him. he had a wonderful kindergarten year with rare problems...then this year he is going in reverse. the teacher has given him no positive reinforcement. he doesn't even want to go to school now. yesterday she sent a behavior slip home (which she told me she was going to start doing to keep me better informed, it was the 2nd one in 2 weeks that she has given me...), she filled in every bad thing that he had done that day. she skipped the whole section on "you child was doing _______really well today". that just makes me think she is just out for the negative and not the positive. later on difficult child told me that he had been chosen to read a book to the principal. (in our school that is rewarding)....so, i am like..why couldn't she have wrote that on the sheet as well??? the psychiatric wants difficult child to tell me at least one thing positive that happened everyday before he can tell me about the bad. he is very stuck on the bad...the minute he gets in the car after school he tells me "i got on red today, i am probably grounded right???" poor little guy. he is showing major depressive symptoms and i just feel like the teacher is out to get him. this morning already she had him call me from school to tell me that he had broke 12 of the classes pencils. she asked me to bring a new pack to the school to compensate.... he has already done this 2 weeks ago, and still he is doing the same things. does she not understand that this is not working, whatever she is doing. its just not working for him. i had her fill out this long form for the psychiatric to get her take on things...she mentioned things in that form that she hadn't ever told to me or my husband about difficult child. big things like...using the "F" word frequently, (which is not like him, he must be picking it up from school), being overly interested in girls, showing bullying characteristics... Those are things she should be calling me for, and informing me of. those are huge things that are not acceptable. she has pushed his desk to the back of the class, instead of to the front by her so she can watch him. i think she is bullying him. he has already been suspended for 1 day, earlier this year. ( i have other posts on this website about that), for throwing a pencil back at a kid and got him close to the eye. what the heck? what do you guys think i should be doing here? thanks for listening too...(yes i am ranting).
